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 Auki
The DMS coordinates are: 8°46'4'' S 160°41'52'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -8.76778°
LngO = 160.69778°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 8.76778°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 160.69778 - 180° = -19.30222°
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 Auki is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (8.76778, -19.30222)
In DMS format: 8°46'4'' S 160°41'52'' E .
