    Geocode - An intuitive Geo location code

    Geocode is a simple location code mapping latitude,longitude to a single alphanumeric string composed of two parts: 1) A single word related to the most prominent location name in the vicinity, 2) An alphanumeric string no longer than 5 characters, defining the location with a 10 meter resolution.

    For Example: BERLIN-XSIIX is a location in Berlin, Germany.

    The Geocode can be easily computed for any location in the world. There is also a map based interface to visually find the geocodes of locations here:

    For more information about geo-location codes and a comparison to similar systems, README.
