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 Richard-Toll
The DMS coordinates are: 16°27'45'' N 15°42'3'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 16.4625°
LngO = -15.70083°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -16.4625°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -15.70083 + 180° = 164.29917°
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 Richard-Toll is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-16.4625, 164.29917)
In DMS format: 16°27'45'' N 15°42'3'' W.
