What is what3words?
what3words is a really simple way to talk about location.
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.
what3words had a lot to celebrate last month. The BBC reported on how UK emergency services use what3words and featured us on TV, radio and online. The app reached #1 on the UK Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store! And there’s a growing list of emergency services accepting what3words.
ER24 in South Africa and the Saudi Red Crescent in Saudi Arabia have joined the many UK emergency services that accept 3 word addresses so people can easily say exactly where help is needed.
Hopefully Gloucestershire will join in soon!
