Rework of This Page or Delete It
This page should get a large rework (it should be rewritten). W3W is a propietary, patent-claiming service which should not have any place at OSM. There have been already discussion(s) about this topic at Talk mailing list.
- I only found one email on the Talk mailing list, and it was only 2 mails. Please link, if there ware more discussion. --Lulu-Ann (talk) 12:38, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
- Frederik has already added a red Ambox box at the top which address my concerns. --Nakaner (talk) 12:42, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
MapCode as an alternative?
Mention that it is no addressing system
The page currently does not highlight strong enough that it is not (in difference to their marketing) a addressing system. It is just a method do encode coordinates. A proper addressing system has the advantage that it is organized hierarchically (country, county, city, street/block, building) and that a small error in transmitting the address only results in a small error (neighbouring house). I hope that someone finds better words than myself (who translated the page into German a few minutes ago). --Nakaner (talk)
