Street addresses weren’t designed for 2020. They aren’t accurate enough to specify precise locations, such as building entrances, and don’t exist for parks and many rural areas.

what3words has divided the world into 3 metre squares and given each square a unique combination of three words. It’s the easiest way to find and share exact locations. Snowdon peak, for example, can be found at ///super.ultra.enhancement.

The free what3words app and website are used across the whole of the UK and around the globe. Lizzie, who’s in the partnerships team at what3words, will give an intro to the concept and give examples of how it’s being used in the tourism industry.
