Cylex teams up with the geocoding startup what3words


We are now offering the what3words feature set within our address validation API.
The collaboration between us and what3words means that businesses and users using our local search platform can now find the what3words for a business location, or lookup an address using its 3 word description. With the help of what3words we can assign a three-word ‘address’ to a business location.

Three words gives it enough variables to address every point on the planet. This unique combination of three words gives you a precise location for anything, anywhere in the world, anytime. It is a game-changer and it’s backed by some very large transport companies.

what3words is the simplest way to talk about location. It has divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares, each with a unique address made from 3 words.

This solution helps users who need to find or share a location, such as aid and development, asset management, delivery, post and ecommerce, emergency response, exploration and sport, festivals and events, GIS, national mapping and government, navigation, property search, taxis, and travel industries.
