Displaying the what3words grid on a Google Map


The what3words API supports the ability to obtain a section of the 3m x 3m what3words grid in GeoJSON format, making it very simple to display on a map.

This tutorial will show you how to integrate the what3words grid onto Google Maps. We also have tutorials demonstrating its use with both Mapbox and LeafletJS.

You will also need to sign up for a Google Maps developer account and be able to view other Google Maps tutorials at
