what3words REST API v3 - Followers

what3words allows users to pinpoint any location on the globe using a unique 3-word combination. This allows users to relay exact (to 2 meters) locations to others in a format that is easier to remember than GPS coordinates. Users can access this functionality from their own applications using the free what3words API. All coordinates are latitude, longitude pairs in standard WGS-84 (as commonly used worldwide in GPS systems). The words used to label locations can be in 27 languages including English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Swahili, Norwegian, and Russian. what3words supports end-to-end speech recognition and post-processing. This allows users to say three words into an application connected to what3words in order to get the corresponding GPS coordinates.
