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 Sanford
The DMS coordinates are: 28°48'2'' N 81°16'23.2'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 28.80055°
LngO = -81.27312°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -28.80055°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -81.27312 + 180° = 98.72688°
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 Sanford is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-28.80055, 98.72688)
In DMS format: 28°48'2'' N 81°16'23.2'' W.
