What3Words is a global address system. We have named every 3mx3m in the world with unique combination of 3 words.Geospatial Start up of the Year is valuable recognition for What3Words.The Idea behind What3Words was to use words 3 words as it is easy for people to grasp. We use latitude and longitude with our algorithm to generate 3 words addressing. We do not use any address or pass code or anything which is much bigger then 3 meters. What3Words is being used postal service companies of Mongolia and World Bank in Tanzania. People expects and demand everything in their life to be precise accurate location so important in today’s world.having unconventional idea is lot easier to get funding.
