What is What3Words, why is it useful and how can I access it?

Whats it all about?

What3Words is a fantastic App and website that helps to pin point locations using a combination of three unique words.

The three words used are specific to a 3ft square area, all over the world. This clever functionality allows us to share specific locations with each other down to the square foot, giving you the option to navigate to exact locations using Google Maps if you wish. Brilliant if you are looking or helping other find specific rural locations, parks, building entrances or had to reach areas that aren’t well signposted. Making this a very beneficial app in the event of an emergency.

You can use What3Words for:
– Sharing with the Emergency Services
– Precise Delivery Points
– In-vehicle navigation
– Save useful locations
– List the location you’re in
– Share meeting points
– Plan activities; entrances, parking spots, meeting points
