US: what3words will be providing its innovative 3 word address and location reference system to the ArcGIS platform. what3words is an Emerging Business Partner in the Esri Startup Program, a three-year program designed to empower small companies to solve big problems with the use of geospatial technology. what3words is an addressing and location reference system based on a global grid of 57 trillion squares of 3mx3m; each square has a unique pre-assigned 3 word address.

For example, crayon.giants.liking is a perfect spot in the Grand Canyon to take a picture of the Kaibab Suspension Bridge across the Colorado River. “Geographical information is a fundamental business tool. A simple way to communicate location is essential to unleash its full potential for everyone, what3words has solved a major aspect of that, particularly in geographies that are disadvantaged with lack of addressing and place name description data. Addressing has just got easier,” said Jack Dangermond, President of Esri.
