What is what3words?
What3words encodes geographic coordinates into 3 dictionary words (for example, the Statue of Liberty is located at planet.inches.most). what3words is different from other alphanumeric location systems and GPS coordinates in that it displays 3 words rather than long strings of numbers or letters. what3words has a website, apps for iOS and Android, as well as an API that enables bidirectional conversion of what3words address and latitude/longitude coordinates.

The first 1,000 coordinate conversion requests are free per month. A business plan is available for additional requests.
