The simplest way to talk about location
Street addresses weren’t designed for 2021. They aren’t accurate enough to specify precise locations, such as building entrances, and don’t exist for parks and many rural areas.
This makes it hard to find places and prevents people from describing exactly where help is needed in an emergency.
That’s why we created what3words.
What is what3words?
We divided the world into 3 metre
squares and gave each square a
unique combination of three words.
