Apparently the desktop version of now uses an OpenStreetMap based map for their COVID-19 Dashboard

People told me they are going to use Google's products because Google is a big company and Google won't be closed soon.

And they were right about Google won't be closed soon. Anyways, I used Wave, Hangouts, Translator Toolkit, Inbox, YouTube Video Annotation, Code, Pacasa, Orkut, Reader, and Talk.

Just saw an ad saying I should use what3words to identify my location when calling the emergency services.

l always got the impression that w3w was proprietary, and required an internet connection. Surely that means there are better options for remote emergencies?

Open Location Code, geohash, or anything else computed on the device seem like better ways of shortening locations (both Google Maps and OsmAnd give you OLC without internet). Many of these systems can even be printed on a map.
