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 Kandé
The DMS coordinates are: 9°57'28'' N 1°2'41'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 9.95778°
LngO = 1.04472°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -9.95778°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 1.04472 - 180° = -178.95528°
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 Kandé is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-9.95778, -178.95528)
In DMS format: 9°57'28'' N 1°2'41'' E .
