The world’s address in 3 words

3-word location mapping
Living in a city in a country with arguably the most sophisticated postcode system in the world, it is easy to forget that few places on Earth actually have an address.  Now the What3Words app offers a unique permutation of three English words that define a precise 3 x 3 metre square on the surface of the Earth.  Best of all, the app is less than 10 MB in size and can run on many devices.  Now you can pinpoint a memorable location from your phone in just three words.
Can you recognise what is in the 3×3 metre square described by “laptop.daisy.fine“.
Can you find any randomly apt 3-word addresses?  Our Map Librarian noticed Portsmouth Law Courts were “judges.wool.bars“.  Can you do better?
