    Bill,

    This is an interesting idea. However, considering they've already chosen the combinations for what seems like the entire Earth, you'd have to use whatever they came up with for your position. The two combinations you suggested weren't exact matches for any location. The closest matches (///linear.hunchback.shale and ///ruby.dolphin.pods) were for random spots in the middle of nowhere in Australia and Alaska, respectively.

    And Robert, see: https://what3words.com/ for more info.
