A seminar meeting on the use of the application to determine the applicant's location was held today via video conference with the developers of the what3words mobile application. According to the developer, the application "what3words" uses a world map consisting of small squares measuring 3 * 3 meters. Each such square has a unique identifier consisting of three words. It was noted that these identifiers are not translations of the same words. What is unique about the application is that the system relies on a fixed algorithm, rather than a large database of every place on earth, it works on devices with limited memory and no Internet connection.

During the training, examples of the program were demonstrated, employees of subordinate units tried to determine the personal location by means of SMS messages in the offline mode. Attendees praised the capabilities of the what3words application in using it to determine the applicant's geolocation.

Currently, "what3words" is actively used by rescue services in the European Union, Canada, and other countries.
