The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:
Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Touho
The DMS coordinates are: 20°47'27.4'' S 165°14'59.5'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -20.79094°
LngO = 165.24987°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 20.79094°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 165.24987 - 180° = -14.75013°
Since the longitude is positive, we subtract 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would sum 180° for the same reason.
The antipode of Touho is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (20.79094, -14.75013)
In DMS format: 20°47'27.4'' S 165°14'59.5'' E .
