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 Dibba Al-Fujairah
The DMS coordinates are: 25°35'32.9'' N 56°15'42.3'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 25.59246°
LngO = 56.26176°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -25.59246°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 56.26176 - 180° = -123.73824°
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 Dibba Al-Fujairah is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-25.59246, -123.73824)
In DMS format: 25°35'32.9'' N 56°15'42.3'' E .
