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 Terrassa
The DMS coordinates are: 41°34'0'' N 2°1'0'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 41.56667°
LngO = 2.01667°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -41.56667°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 2.01667 - 180° = -177.98333°
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 Terrassa is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-41.56667, -177.98333)
In DMS format: 41°34'0'' N 2°1'0'' E .
