what3words is the simplest way to communicate location.

what3words is a global grid of 57 trillion 3mx3m squares.

Each square has a 3 word address that can be communicated quickly, easily and with no ambiguity.

And you can do it all in your own language (go to the settings menu to change the 3 word language).

Everyone and everywhere now has an address.

Explore the map, zoom in to see the grid, and tap the word-bar to share a 3 word location with your friends.

Or keep it simple and use the compass.

You can use the what3words app to find, share and get directions to any 3 words location.

what3words is universal.

You can email or SMS a 3 word address or say it over the phone. You can write it down or just remember it.

It's the simplest way to communicate location.

We hope you enjoy what3words!

Please note: some functions on the what3words app require an internet connection, and the app functions best when you allow it to use your current location.

    I can direct my staff to sites with a postcode of a small country. Why hasn't this caught on with courier companies?
