    Identify Any Location On Google Maps With Just Three Words

    Link: what3words

    Drag the red marker over to the location you want to pinpoint and what3words creates a URL that will take you to that place in a browser:



    In the image above the three words identifying The Radcliffe Camera in Oxford are: Shops Sting Once.

    The link created here is:

    Link: what3words

    I just tried three words chosen randomly and ended up on the coast of Alaska.

    Trying the college where I work, I got nearly.avoid.ledge one side of the campus and nods.secret.tears on the other side. I'm not sure what that says about it. Trying Wednesbury in the heart of the Black Country, I got accent.gossip.leave, which sums the place up nicely.
