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 Haveluloto
The DMS coordinates are: 21°9'7.8'' S 175°12'48'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -21.15216°
LngO = -175.21333°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 21.15216°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -175.21333 + 180° = 4.78667°
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 Haveluloto is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (21.15216, 4.78667)
In DMS format: 21°9'7.8'' S 175°12'48'' W.
