Founded in 2013, this innovative global addressing system is now used on a daily basis by emergency services as well as the general public to pinpoint precise locations.

It works by dividing the world into 57 trillion three by three-meter squares, each with a unique three-word address.

For example ///sprinkler.resolved.activity marks the exact entrance to Lister’s Stonehouse base.
