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 Town
The DMS coordinates are: 7°20'33.3'' N 134°28'44'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 7.34257°
LngO = 134.47888°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -7.34257°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 134.47888 - 180° = -45.52112°
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 Town is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-7.34257, -45.52112)
In DMS format: 7°20'33.3'' N 134°28'44'' E .
