Street addresses weren’t designed in 2021 and for a contemporary fit. They aren’t accurate enough to specify precise locations such as building entrances, and don’t exist in many areas, such as slums or rural areas. what3words divides the world into 3 metre squares and gives each square a unique combination of three words. In addition to helping people on a daily basis, it also allows underrepresented citizens to "be on the map" by sharing there before-nonexistent address, or emergency services to get faster to the exact location.
