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 Saratamata
The DMS coordinates are: 15°17'25.1'' S 167°58'0.4'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -15.29031°
LngO = 167.96679°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 15.29031°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 167.96679 - 180° = -12.03321°
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 Saratamata is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (15.29031, -12.03321)
In DMS format: 15°17'25.1'' S 167°58'0.4'' E .
