What3Words digital addresses spread to island nations
For countries with missing or broken postal address systems, assigning three-word labels to every geographic spot on the planet can be useful.

*** begin quote ***

But it’s not perfect: You need a phone or computer to translate the three words into a physical location, there’s no What3Words support in popular navigation tools like Google Maps, and adjacent patches have totally unrelated names so you can’t tell what country a three-word label is in, much less what neighborhood.

*** end quote ***

There’s no doubt to any reader here that I LOVE this idea.

All that’s needed it that (1) Google get behind it; (2) the adjoining “words” be know on the map; and (3) the Gooferments of the world get behind it.

Amazon, Walmart, and most post offices could save time, money, and confusion with it.

FROM “dinner.sizes.chat”, see you soon.
