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 Saint-Joseph
The DMS coordinates are: 21°22'39.7'' S 55°37'0.9'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -21.3777°
LngO = 55.61691°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 21.3777°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 55.61691 - 180° = -124.38309°
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 Saint-Joseph is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (21.3777, -124.38309)
In DMS format: 21°22'39.7'' S 55°37'0.9'' E .
