Location codes

his might be of particular interest to Meuon: A project out of Google for generating location codes for places that have streets, but no formal addressing system.


From the FAQ:

More than half the world's urban dwellers live on streets that don't have formal names. We expect these codes will be mostly used by people in areas lacking street addresses, but could also be used in areas that are mapped but where street name data is not widely available or where both formal and informal names exist.
