what3words is a really simple way to talk about location. We have divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and assigned each one a unique 3 word address. It means anyone can accurately find any location and share it more quickly, easily and with less ambiguity than any other system. 

The service can be used via the free mobile app or online map. It can also be built into any other app, platform or website, with just a few lines of code.
