what3words is a universal addressing system based on a 3mx3m global grid.
Each of the 57 trillion 3mx3m squares in the world has been pre-allocated a fixed & unique 3 word address.
Our geocoder turns geographic coordinates into these 3 word addresses & vice-versa.
As it is an algorithm our solution takes up less than 10MB, small enough to install on almost all smartphones and works across platforms and devices.
what3words is a plug-in for businesses and individuals, via an API, to enhance their own products and services with simple and precise addressing.
