INOVATION: Exact locations with what3words

Published on Mar 14, 2017

Hundreds of thousands of people in South Africa live in informal settlements which lack reliable addressing. Gateway Health has begun piloting the use of 3 word addresses in KwaNdengezi, a poor informal settlement on the outskirts of Durban. It will help to build a detailed community map, so that residents, businesses and organisations can continue to use 3 word addresses to greatly improve their standard of living.

I really like this idea. Better than zip codes. 

And not just for pizza delivery in Mongolia. 

Pretty good for here in the USA.

Here at my NH location, I am set back off the street and it’s hard to find if you don’t know where it is.

Imagine if the USA adopted this as a national standard.
