How to calculate the antipodal point?

The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:

  • LatO: Latitude at the origin point.
  • LngO: Longitude at the origin point.
  • LatA: Latitude at the antipodal point.
  • LngA: Longitude at the antipodal point.

Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Maracay

The DMS coordinates are: 10°14'7.3'' N 67°35'28.1'' W.

Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = 10.23535°

LngO = -67.59113°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = -10.23535°

Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = -67.59113 + 180° = 112.40887°

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 Maracay is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-10.23535, 112.40887)

In DMS format: 10°14'7.3'' N 67°35'28.1'' W.
