(EN) A METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR IDENTIFYING AND COMMUNICATING LOCATIONS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL D'IDENTIFICATION ET DE TRANSMISSION DE POSITIONS
Abstract
(EN) A method of producing a location identifier comprising: obtaining the geographical coordinates of a location; converting the geographical coordinates into single unique value n; converting the single unique value n into a unique group of a plurality of values; converting the plurality of values into an equal plurality of respective words; and providing the plurality of words as a location identifier, and a method of identifying a location comprising: obtaining a location identifier for a location, the location identifier comprising a plurality of words; converting the plurality of words into a unique group of an equal plurality of respective values; converting the unique group of a plurality of values into a single unique value n; converting the single unique value n into geographical coordinates; and outputting the geographical coordinates.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de production d'un identifiant de lieu, consistant à : obtenir les coordonnées géographiques d'un lieu; convertir les coordonnées géographiques en une seule valeur unique n; convertir la seule valeur unique n en un groupe unique d'une pluralité de valeurs; convertir la pluralité de valeurs en une pluralité égale de mots respectifs; et fournir la pluralité de mots sous la forme d'un identifiant de lieu, et un procédé d'identification d'un lieu consistant à : obtenir un identifiant de lieu concernant un lieu, l'identifiant de lieu comprenant une pluralité de mots; convertir la pluralité de mots en un groupe unique d'une pluralité égale de valeurs respectives; convertir le groupe unique d'une pluralité de valeurs en une seule valeur unique n; convertir la seule valeur unique n en des coordonnées géographiques; et fournir en sortie les coordonnées géographiques.
