what3words has divided the globe into 3m squares and given each one a unique three word identifier.
It means any precise location can be communicated with just three words.
For example ///tables.moss.mods is one address for the entrance to Knight’s Hide-Away Park.
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has announced in December 2020 it will be using what3words.
