The entire globe has been divided into 3 foot squares and every square has been allocated a 3 word name, honestly…following me so far?
There is a FREE app which is also linked with google maps which I use to identify to others responding, where an ‘incident’ has occurred. Most incidents I attend don’t have a road, house number or postcode, and the nearest postcode can be some way off.
You just type in the 3 words indicated on the map or sent to you by text/email or verbal and it opens up the map and pinpoints the spot allocated to those three words. I’m not sure if it would be any use to us flyers in identifying a particular take off spot, but as most places we fly from don’t have a postcode it might be useful to add the 3 words in any description, (see the 3 words at the bottom of the map screenshot) enabling others to easily look it up.
