Get an accurate 12-digit address for every corner of India, with LinCodes!
Chennai , 17th April 2017: When your car breaks down on the highway,
or you get stranded in the middle of nowhere, when your taxi can’t find
the exact location or you see a huge pothole in the middle of the road,
wouldn’t it be great to be able to lead the right people directly to your
Similarly, even in emergency situations, when ambulances, police vehicles
and fire trucks have to find the right location, an accurate map will simply
help save a lot of time, and a lot of lives.
LinCodes is an application that does exactly that. It divides the entire
country into a grid of 10ftX10ft squares for easy accessibility, with each
square assigned a unique 12-digit address in numerical form, leading to a
very well-defined addressing and way-finding system. This method also
provides a defined and amazingly simple way to lead anybody to a
particular location. Using the app is quite effortless as well. One can search
for any stored address or generate a code for a particular location and
share it with anybody else, even in offline mode.
Talking about the launch of LinCodes, Pramod Rathi, Founder, NextEra
Softech LLP, says, “A poor addressing system may seem no more than a
minor annoyance, but it definitely hampers growth and development, at
times, even costing lives.
In such sitations, it becomes increasingly important for everyone from a lay
person to emergency services to be able to communicate even the most
complex of addresses in the most accurate and simple way possible.”
