What3Words API Search Command

Splunk AppInspect Passed
Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
This makes it easy to enrich your data with location information direct from what3words. What3words is an amazing service that has managed to grid the globe into 3x3 square meter grids, each with its own unique set of 3 words. e.g. next.anyway.comical. This app allows you to get the what3words reference for a set of lat and long coordinates, or get the lat and long coordinates from a what3word reference.

This was developed in association with Converging Data as part of the Big Data Beards Road Trip 2 .conf 19! For more information, please check out the following links:
- convergingdata.com
- bigdatabeard.com
- what3words.com


Using the search commands are simple and vary slightly depending on whether you wish to get a W3W name using lat and long, or lat and long from W3W. Both commands are generating commands which mean they must be used as the first command just like metadata, tstats, etc

Get ///words

| what3wordswords key=KEY long=VALUE lat=VALUE

Get Lat and Long

| what3wordscoord key=KEY words=VALUE

You can obtain a key from what3words.com.
