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 Mbaké
The DMS coordinates are: 14°47'25.2'' N 15°54'28.9'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 14.79032°
LngO = -15.90803°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -14.79032°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -15.90803 + 180° = 164.09197°
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 Mbaké is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-14.79032, 164.09197)
In DMS format: 14°47'25.2'' N 15°54'28.9'' W.
