Barrie Police put out the following
What3Words Technology Available for Use by Barrie Police | Barrie Police
Besides being an extremely useful tool in case of emergency, in the Midland Ganaraska Hiking Club, we also use the What 3 Words app to give hikers directions to a trailhead. What 3 Words is linked to Google/Apple Maps to get specific driving instructions. It really works well and our hikers love it. Example: If you want to come and hike at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre in Midland, type compressed.lantern.rotate in the What 3 words app and click on Navigate. Super easy.
The app is also very useful to report trail maintenance issues, such as fallen trees, bridge out, etc.
