Azimap integrates with What3Words

Azimap is delighted to the announce the integration with what3words, a location reference system based on a global grid of 57 trillion 3m x 3m squares. Each square has been pre-assigned a fixed and unique 3 word address.

Using the Azimap GIS application, users can now search for a location using 3 word addresses and display them for any key points of interest. This means everyone can make the most of their geographic data, and can simply and efficiently communicate any specific location to the world.

It provides our clients with the opportunity to market and communicate precise locations which are more memorable to their audience, when compared to traditional location based coordinates.
In addition, the integration with what3words and the azimap GIS application, signifies the importance of precision geographic data reporting especially when related to the emergency services. This is another milestone in the ongoing product development and core offering of Aizimap as GI SaaS application.”
