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 Edinburgh of the Seven Seas
The DMS coordinates are: 37°4'3.3'' S 12°18'41.6'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -37.06757°
LngO = -12.31155°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 37.06757°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -12.31155 + 180° = 167.68845°
Since the longitude is negative, we sum 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would subtract 180° for the same reason.
The antipode of Edinburgh of the Seven Seas is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (37.06757, 167.68845)
In DMS format: 37°4'3.3'' S 12°18'41.6'' W.
