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 Market Shop
The DMS coordinates are: 17°7'55.8'' N 62°34'21.6'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 17.13218°
LngO = -62.57267°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -17.13218°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -62.57267 + 180° = 117.42733°
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 Market Shop is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-17.13218, 117.42733)
In DMS format: 17°7'55.8'' N 62°34'21.6'' W.
