# Antipodal Coordinates

## Antipode Calculator

Tool to find the point on the other side of the Earth. Two points are said to the antipodes if they are diametrically opposite on a sphere.

### What is an antipodal point?

Two points are called antipodal if they are at two opposite points on a circle or a sphere. They are also said to be diametrically opposed.

Example: On Earth, the north pole and the south pole are antipodes.

Example: The antipodes of France is near New-Zealand.

The Earth is assimilated to a sphere, but in practice it is modeled as a spheroid (normal ellipsoid) or a geoid.

### How to compute antipodal coordinates?

From the coordinates on a sphere, take the opposite value of the latitude (which is to put or remove a minus sign -), and remove or add 180 to the longitude (to keep it in the interval [-180; +180]).

Example: The $$-12.345, 67.890$$ coordinates have for antipode $$12.345, -112.11$$
