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 Sainte-Rose
The DMS coordinates are: 21°7'42.9'' S 55°47'46.2'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -21.12858°
LngO = 55.79616°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 21.12858°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 55.79616 - 180° = -124.20384°
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 Sainte-Rose is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (21.12858, -124.20384)
In DMS format: 21°7'42.9'' S 55°47'46.2'' E .
