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 Koror
The DMS coordinates are: 7°20'23.2'' N 134°28'23.7'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 7.33978°
LngO = 134.47326°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -7.33978°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 134.47326 - 180° = -45.52674°
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 Koror is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-7.33978, -45.52674)
In DMS format: 7°20'23.2'' N 134°28'23.7'' E .
