    Default What 3 Words

    Imagine if you can hold a specific position (lat and lon) or address in your head and generally get it right. Or find a specific house or business without being able to read the house number.

    Well now it is much easier. These guys have matched each 3 meter square on the earth to a triplet of words from the english dictionary. They've also done this for other languages.

    This looks like a bit of a game changer.

    My property has a large number of 3 word addresses. None of which my family would recognize as being on my property.

    I would need to have some sort of tech to find a three word address. I don't think asking a local would help much.
    Life is complex.
