"What3words" Bradford Landmarks Viral app

What3words has changed the world's coordinate system by dividing the entire planet into 57 trillion squares, each measuring three metres by three metres. Over 80% of UK emergency services use what3words to find people faster. Any 3m square can be found with three words.

Type in (drum.larger.occupy) in the app and it will take you to 10 Downing Street. The top of Blackpool tower is (sizes.crunch.rods).

It could save your life

If you become stranded or get into difficulty in a remote location - such as the moor, forest or mountain - you can use the app to share your exact location with the emergency services.

If you have no idea where you are you can locate yourself via a pin on a map, but imagine trying to describe this pin to someone during a 999 call.
