What3Words Geocoder

What3Words provides a geocoding and reverse-geocoding service which can be integrated with GpsGate.

Customers who provide services where street addresses are less common will benefit from a what3words integration. What3words (a geocoding system) assigns a three-word combination to geographic coordinates. You can pinpoint and share a location when an address isn’t available. For example, GpsGate’s office is at wooden.shadows.pictured
