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 Bras-Panon
The DMS coordinates are: 20°59'48'' S 55°40'41.6'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -20.99667°
LngO = 55.67823°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 20.99667°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 55.67823 - 180° = -124.32177°
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 Bras-Panon is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (20.99667, -124.32177)
In DMS format: 20°59'48'' S 55°40'41.6'' E .
