Addressing The World


Chris Sheldrick

Co-founder & CEO


what3words is an innovative global addressing system. It has divided the world into 57 trillion 3m x 3m squares, each with a unique 3 word address. 3 word addresses are easy to remember, and to share via email, text or over the phone. The addresses are pre-assigned, using an algorithm and each 3 word address refers to a precise 3m x 3m square somewhere in the world. The what3words code is being integrated by business, apps and services across the world in a wide variety of sectors to improve efficiency, reduce frustration and save lives.
