Smarter cities need smarter addresses. And you just need 3 words

So What3Words came up with is an easier way for communicating precise locations around the world. Using an advanced algorithmic equation, the company parsed the planet into 3 x 3-meter squares (roughly 10 x 10 feet) and then assigned a unique sequence of three words — such as ruins.chew.slowly or admit.blast.plans — to identify each and every square. That translates into 57 trillion squares covering the globe, including the open oceans, using a vocabulary of just 40,000 words.
