I learned recently that the British location system, What3Words, has been adopted by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to assist in dispatching. I have posted about W3W in this blog several times before. Check out here and here to learn more about it and have some fun.
This time I thought it would be fun to try to find the location of some ordinary products using W3W. I’ve discovered that:
Foster.Grant.glasses can be found just off Highway 50 near Dodge City Kansas.
To get a Chase.Bank.Visa you should visit the Nature Center at Crawley, England. For that you’d first need a United.Airlines.ticket and for that you’ll need to cross a few miles into Saskatchewan.
For a Home.Depot.hammer or General.Motors.vehicle, on the other hand, you’ll need to go all the way to Australia.
Quite a few Fortune 100 companies have valid W3W names. Check these out:
- United Health Group
- International Business Machines
- Express Scripts Holding
- United Parcel Service
- Marathon Petroleum Corporation
