What is 'what3words'?

what3words is a digital geocoding system that allows you to pinpoint exact locations throughout the entire planet, by typing in three simple words.

what3words has divided the entire globe into little squares, that are three by three meters. Each square is identified by words in a unique order, for example, the location for 10 Downing Street is slurs. this. shark.
