GPS Coordinates reviewed here is a good alternative to conventionally locating a place with a postal address.
However, what3words is even better as it does not require a long string of latitude and longitude numbers; instead, it offers a solution to global addresses by using three words that are easier to dictate and remember than any coordinates or plus codes.
What3words has assigned a three-word address to each 3m x 3m square on a grid of 57 trillion squares across the globe. For example, to navigate to a place in Notting Hill, London, just use these three words cool.view.spark in what3words, you can then get directions to the location via Google Maps or any other navigation app on your mobile device.
What3words has been adopted by some navigation systems and postal services in certain countries. It clocked up another mileage when Daimler AG recently announced that Mercedes-Benz would be the first automobile manufacturer to integrate what3words address system and make it available to its customers.
