How to calculate the antipodal point?

The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:

  • LatO: Latitude at the origin point.
  • LngO: Longitude at the origin point.
  • LatA: Latitude at the antipodal point.
  • LngA: Longitude at the antipodal point.

Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Katowice

The DMS coordinates are: 50°15'30.3'' N 19°1'39.1'' E .

Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = 50.25841°

LngO = 19.02754°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = -50.25841°

Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = 19.02754 - 180° = -160.97246°

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 Katowice is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-50.25841, -160.97246)

In DMS format: 50°15'30.3'' N 19°1'39.1'' E .
