Definition of plus codes
Open Location Code is a system for identifying areas on the surface of the Earth.
The alphanumeric codes are called "plus codes" because each code includes a "+" character.
The resolution of the specified area is defined by the number of digits in the plus code. Longer plus codes identify a smaller area.
Plus codes are often used as a replacement for street addresses, especially in places where buildings aren’t numbered or streets aren’t named.
