Topic: Turning lat-longs into readable words...
Interesting website looking to make a mark by 'humanising' lat-long references - at a stated resolution of 3m x 3m. Each 'square' is given a combination of unique 3 words to define it. And of course being lat-long it's a global referencing system.
There's an app too (at least on Android).
I'm currently sat having lunch in the DGERC office at condition.magical.recovery and earlier this summer I found some rather nice Betony plants flowering nearby at starfish.hammer.chicken
Could we be receiving records with what3words references in future? Certainly less 'dry' than grid refs but it does appear to lack the ability to vary spatial precision.
And before anyone looks I'm told they removed offensive words...
