what3words is the easiest way to talk about precise location in emergency situations.
By dividing the world into 3x3m squares and given each one a 3 word address, they have made it possible to refer to any precise point using just 3 words - for example a precise point on the riverbank in York can be found at ///kite.chats.dine. For areas where addressing isn't good enough or non-existent; for example farms, fields and coastline or areas obscured by floodwaters - it provides a way to refer precisely to exact points where help or resources are required.
what3words is available via a free app and a browser map at map.what3words.com. It is also available in selected software for emergency service control rooms.
what3words is already being used effectively by emergency services around the world to help improve response times and coordinate resources.
