Address a nation with what3words
Now that everywhere has a 3 word address, you can enable access to essential services for everyone and fuel economic growth.
Quick to implement
Rapid urbanisation is leaving millions of people ‘off the grid’ and difficult to locate. A 3 word address can be discovered in less than 60 seconds, enabling governments to give everyone an address in record time.
With what3words, each 3m x 3m square in your country has a 3 word address that will never change, reducing the need for set up and eliminating maintenance – even in areas of rapid development.
Complements existing addressing systems
3 word addresses can be used to help deliver services and emergency aid, as well as for government data collection – always as an enhancement or addition to existing street addressing systems.
Access to essential services
Governments struggle to deliver basic services to people without an address.
Using 3 word addresses allows governments to offer access to essential healthcare and financial services as well as voting, censuses, birth registry and education.

Sony Innovation Fund invests in what3words
“what3words has solved the considerable problem of entering a precise location into a machine by voice. The dramatic rise in voice-activated systems calls for a simple voice geocoder that works across all digital platforms and channels, and can be written down and spoken easily.”
