The distance from Gisborne to Alcadozo is about 20,000 kilometers. A direct flight would take around 22 hours, but there aren't commercial routes between these cities.
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 Gisborne
The DMS coordinates are: 38°39'12'' S 178°0'15'' E. Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -38.6533318°
LngO = 178.0041656°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 38.6533318°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 178.0041656 - 180° = -1.9958344°
Since the longitude is positive, we substract 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 Gisborne is located on coordinates (LatA, LngA) = (38.6533318, -1.9958344), or in DMS format: 38°39'12'' N 1°59'45'' W.
