A new, accurate to within 3 metres location program is sweeping the world! It's called "what3words" and can be obtained from the App Store, free!
It is brilliant for letting (emergency) people know exactly where you are should you need help in the middle on nowhere!

Now we need to be able to incorporate it into our drone software!!!

Eh? Standard GPS is there but certainly haven't seen or heard of this until recently??
Yes, all GPS locators use the standard coordinates of Longitude and latitude such as 51.520847, -0.19552100, the three word system is much easier to say and remember.

I’m totally confused by what you are saying. The iPhone map application will always show you where you are with the same accuracy of what you cite, just by launching it

Agree, but if you are in the middle of nowhere, a forest/wood/moor etc it's a good way to pinpoint your location should you need help. I also have an App that gives me my Lat/Long but remembering those long numbers while you fail for help isn't easy but three words are easy to remember.
Don't know why I bothered to post on here!
