About what3words Stock

what3words is a global grid of 3mx3m squares. Each square has a preallocated, unique & fixed 3 word address. This means everyone and everywhere now has an address. Using words means non-technical people can find any location more accurately and most importantly, communicate it more quickly, more easily and with less ambiguity than any other system. what3words is a tiny piece of code, an API or SDK that plugs into existing businesses' apps & services, and works across a range of platforms and devices. It is available in multiple languages, including English, Russian, French, Spanish, Turkish & shortly, Swahili & Arabic. Around 75% of the world (135 countries) suffers from inconsistent, complicated or inadequate addressing systems. This means that around 4 billion people are invisible; unable to report crime; unable to get deliveries or receive aid; and unable to exercise many of their rights as citizens because they simply have no way to communicate where they live. It means that in remote locations water facilities can’t be found, monitored and fixed; and schools, refugee camps and informal settlements remain unaddressed. Even in countries with advanced address systems, people get lost, packages aren’t delivered, and businesses and tourist attractions don’t get found. Poor addressing is costly & annoying in some developed countries, but around the world it hampers the growth and development of nations, ultimately costing lives.
