what3words processor

This processor is not available by default. Please contact Opendatasoft support team if you want this processor to be activated in your workspace.

The what3words processor uses geographical coordinates to produce a three-word address.

This processor requires a what3words API key.

Users undertake to become aware of and comply with What3words' licenses and terms of use. They are solely responsible for this, and Opendatasoft's liability can never be sought in this regard.

Setting the API key

To setup a what3words key in order to use this processor:

  1. Click on the Configuration tab in your back office
  2. Click on the Data processing tab of the Configuration menu
  3. In the what3words API section, fill in the API key parameter
  4. Click on the Save button at the top of the page

Setting the processor
