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 Owando
The DMS coordinates are: 0°28'54.9'' S 15°53'59.6'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -0.48193°
LngO = 15.89988°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 0.48193°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 15.89988 - 180° = -164.10012°
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 Owando is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (0.48193, -164.10012)
In DMS format: 0°28'54.9'' S 15°53'59.6'' E .
