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 Gamboma

The DMS coordinates are: 1°52'35'' S 15°51'52'' E .

Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = -1.87639°

LngO = 15.86444°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = 1.87639°

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

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = 15.86444 - 180° = -164.13556°

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 Gamboma is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (1.87639, -164.13556)

In DMS format: 1°52'35'' S 15°51'52'' E .
