Faces of addresses
Are addresses really that important? Yes! In order to show you, how the lack of precise address can complicate your life, we started new cycle called Faces of Addresses. We collected stories from people from all over the world who experienced problems with addresses. Is it easy to get a cab in Costa Rica? Is there anything that could go wrong with addressing system in Stockholm? How much time would it take to find a museum in China when you can’t ask anyone for directions? Read more about adventures with addresses!
We have got a new addressing system in part of the capital Kampala. But people are not really using it yet as the new street names are not uploaded to the online map. A customer can stand next to the street sign and tell me the name and I cannot find it on the map in my taxi app. When I finally find the customer we realise that the street names differ. I hope they will soon upload the new names to the map. That could be useful for us!Driver in Kampala, Uganda
We recently got a new colleague working with us. We were excited to invite him to the workshop, and really looking forward to his visit to Stockholm. We had arranged to use a flat at Lilla Essingen and I had been given the key. The number of the street was 37, and with the keys in my hand I looked it up on Google maps. To my surprise it was close down by the water, which did not make sense to me as I knew the location of some of the other doors on that street. I was right. It was not the right place. So I started looking for it, but the location on the map was incorrect and the numbers of the street were not leading there. I was lost! Turns out that number 37, was next to number 51. Streets and number are usually very organized in Sweden, so I could not even have imagined. It took me 20 minutes to find the place, and I was never more than 200 meters away.Karoline, Sweden
