This new cool geocode app will change how people find places. Anybody who has travelled much knows how difficult it can be to navigate to meetings, restaurants, museums etc in unfamiliar locations. In my case navigating the the backcountry around Whistler in the winter can be dangerous and directing emergency services critical. What3words is the solution, so what is it?
"We have assigned each 3m square in the world a unique 3 word address that will never change.
For example ///filled.count.soap marks the exact entrance to what3words’ London headquarters.
3 word addresses are easy to say and share, and are as accurate as GPS coordinates.
51.520847, -0.19552100 ←→ /// filled.count.soap
Our vision is to become a global standard for communicating location. People use what3words to find their tents at festivals, navigate to B&Bs, and to direct emergency services to the right place."
