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 Serravalle
The DMS coordinates are: 43°58'8.3'' N 12°28'54'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 43.96897°
LngO = 12.48167°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -43.96897°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 12.48167 - 180° = -167.51833°
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 Serravalle is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-43.96897, -167.51833)
In DMS format: 43°58'8.3'' N 12°28'54'' E .
