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 Burgos
The DMS coordinates are: 42°20'27.8'' N 3°42'6.6'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 42.34106°
LngO = -3.70184°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -42.34106°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -3.70184 + 180° = 176.29816°
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 Burgos is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-42.34106, 176.29816)
In DMS format: 42°20'27.8'' N 3°42'6.6'' W.
