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 Kulia Village
The DMS coordinates are: 6°6'29.5'' S 177°20'2.1'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -6.10819°
LngO = 177.33393°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 6.10819°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 177.33393 - 180° = -2.66607°
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 Kulia Village is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (6.10819, -2.66607)
In DMS format: 6°6'29.5'' S 177°20'2.1'' E .
