Plus Codes

What are plus codes?

A plus code is like a street address for people or places that don't have one.

Plus codes give addresses to everyone, everywhere, allowing them to receive deliveries, access emergency services, register to vote – and more.

A plus code address looks like a regular address, but with a short code where the street name and number would be. These addresses exist for any location, even for places where there are no roads.

  • Plus codes are free. There are no licensing fees or other costs. The technology is open-sourced.
  • You don't need a network connection: Plus codes work whether you are online or offline.
  • Places that are close to each other have similar plus codes. This makes it easy to work out if you are near to, or far away from your destination.
  • Plus codes work in places that haven't been mapped.
