Walk locations now include what3words support

By walkiees on 30th October 2020

We are very excited to announce that we are now listing what3words addresses for all our dog walks to help you navigate.

The best dog walk spots, like remote beaches and viewpoints, can be the hardest to describe and find. That's why we’re using what3words – it is a really simple way to talk about location. Every 3m square in the world has been assigned a unique 3 word address that will never change. For example [///urban.tame.castle] marks the exact entrance to the Dibden Inclosure dog walk in the New Forest.

People use what3words to find their tents at festivals, navigate to B&Bs, and to direct emergency services to the right place. Now every dog walk on Walkiees has the w3w address listed under the “How to get there” section. Simply click on the link and you’ll be able to navigate to that exact spot.

When you add your dog walk to Walkiees, we generate the w3w address automatically based on the marker you set on the map.
