Browsing: Geolocation

The startup what3words wants to change the world by changing one of its most established naming conventions: the address system. Rather than rely on house numbers, street names and zipcodes, the app provides a three-word “name” for every location on the planet and helps you navigate to it using a traditional map app and a compass. It addresses holes in the U.S.’s address system, but, perhaps more importantly, it can work really well in developing nations.
