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 Woodlands
The DMS coordinates are: 1°26'16.8'' N 103°47'19.6'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 1.43801°
LngO = 103.78877°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -1.43801°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 103.78877 - 180° = -76.21123°
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 Woodlands is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-1.43801, -76.21123)
In DMS format: 1°26'16.8'' N 103°47'19.6'' E .
