what3words

what3words is a service which pinpoints any location on the globe (to the nearest 2 metres) with a unique 3 word combination. This is far more accurate than you can achieve with a postal address (if indeed the location you are trying to pinpoint even has a postal address), and definitely easier than remembering a set of GPS co-ordinates.

what3words also offers a service called OneWord which allows you to create a customised, shorter, and even easier reference for any location of your choice, accurate to the nearest metre.
