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 Al Ain City
The DMS coordinates are: 24°11'30'' N 55°45'38'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 24.19167°
LngO = 55.76056°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -24.19167°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 55.76056 - 180° = -124.23944°
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 Al Ain City is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-24.19167, -124.23944)
In DMS format: 24°11'30'' N 55°45'38'' E .
