What3words Augmentation

This extractor allows you to translate what3words addresses to coordinates and vice versa. Before using the extractor, you need to obtain a what3words API key. Notice that each translated address requires one API call.

Create New Configuration

Find the what3words augmentation in the list of extractors, and create a new configuration. Name it.

Augment What3words Address

In this mode of operation, specify a what3words address. The extractor will then fetch the geographical latitude and longitude coordinates for the place. Specify a single table which has exactly one column with what3words addresses. If the source table does not meet this requirement, edit the input mapping details accordingly.

You can test the extraction on this sample file. Upload it to the ‘in.c-w3w’ bucket in Storage first, and call it words. After that, specify a single table in the input mapping, and select the forward method in the configuration. (The names of the columns and the csv file in the input mapping are not important, use any name you like.)

Augment Coordinates

In this case, specify geographical latitude and longitude coordinates, and the extractor will fetch their what3words addresses. Specify one or more tables which have exactly two columns: the first column with a latitude, the second one with a longitude. If the source table does not meet these requirements, edit the input mapping details accordingly.
