Area Code
The area code from a telecommunications perspective is a numeric code that usually goes before a business or personal telephone number. The area code is used to divide and identify regions and districts within a country. Many telephone exchanges connect telecom networks, and area codes help in both the routing and directing of inbound and outbound telephone calls

Denomination / Division
Currency denominations or divisions is the term used to describe the lower units or decimals of a currency. For example, one hundred cents (¢) make one dollar ($), and one hundred pence (p) make one pound (£). Lower denominations and divisions are typically coins rather than notes and are usually made of non-precious metals (bronze, copper plate, nickel and alloys or a mixture of different metals)

Geo Location
When we typically access the internet, we connect via a telecommunications company/provider (through our mobile device, broadband, Wi-Fi, etc.). Our provider will usually assign both a local and external IP (Internet Protocol) address upon connecting. The address is used to help identify both the network (telecommunications provider) and the physical location of the connection (typically the closest telephone exchange, satellite etc.).

The IP address and GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates, if using a smartphone device, are shared with websites and applications (if you provide approval). The information provided details your physical location, enabling the website or app to provide you with tailored services based on where you are located. An example is providing you with more information about businesses or services around you by proximity/distance.

QR Codes
Gayther Terms - QR Codes
Quick Response Code or QR code is a type of two-dimensional barcode. Traditional barcodes will only contain a limited amount of information used by machines (such a product codes). QR codes can be used to share the same information as traditional barcodes, as well as phrases, website links, licence information, and so much more.

The recipient of the QR code only needs a QR reader, which is typically free to use and download and is available on both android and IOS devices. Also, the recipient needs a camera capable of capturing a reasonable image quality to scan the code and for the information contained within the QR code to be displayed. Most smartphone cameras will automatically detect the information within QR Codes without needing to download any additional software.

These measurements are numeric, and the more decimal places that are used, the more concise and accurate the location. what3words has created an innovative system. Instead of using numeric geo positions, they use a grid system where each area can be described and located by merely using three words.
