MGUG Lunch Time Presentation – James Cochrane Partnerships Manager at what3words

August 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Details

How 3 words can help save time and resources

what3words is a really simple way to communicate location. They have divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and given each one a unique address made of 3 dictionary words. This means that anywhere in the world can be found using 3 words, rather than a complex string of lat/long coordinates or an imprecise street address. Among a wide range of industry applications, their technology can be integrated into GIS tools and is used by local authorities, utilities and emergency services around the world to help them save time and improve operational efficiencies.
