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 Marbella
The DMS coordinates are: 36°30'55.5'' N 4°53'9'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 36.51543°
LngO = -4.88583°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -36.51543°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -4.88583 + 180° = 175.11417°
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 Marbella is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-36.51543, 175.11417)
In DMS format: 36°30'55.5'' N 4°53'9'' W.
