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 Sufālat Samā’il
The DMS coordinates are: 23°19'0'' N 58°1'0'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 23.31667°
LngO = 58.01667°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -23.31667°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 58.01667 - 180° = -121.98333°
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 Sufālat Samā’il is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-23.31667, -121.98333)
In DMS format: 23°19'0'' N 58°1'0'' E .
