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 Ngerulmud
The DMS coordinates are: 7°30'2.8'' N 134°37'25.7'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 7.50077°
LngO = 134.6238°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -7.50077°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 134.6238 - 180° = -45.3762°
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 Ngerulmud is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-7.50077, -45.3762)
In DMS format: 7°30'2.8'' N 134°37'25.7'' E .
