How is what3words able to provide accurate address of every location?

With what3words, Chris Sheldrick and his team have divided the entire planet into three-meter squares and assigned each a unique, three-word identifier, like famous.splice.writers or blocks.evenly.breed, giving a precise address to the billions of people worldwide who don’t have one. In this quick talk about a big idea, Sheldrick explains the economic and political implications of giving everyone an accurate address — from building infrastructure to sending aid to disaster zones to delivering hot pizza.

We have named every 3mx3m in the world with unique combination of 3 words.

Geospatial Start up of the Year is valuable recognition for What3Words.

We use latitude and longitude with our algorithm to generate 3 words addressing.
