Mapcodes - finally an easy way to share a location

Mapcodes are (finally) an easy way to share a location. I've just learned about them in Here Maps, which provide mapcodes for search result locations.

A mapcode looks like this: "AUT HR.Q1"

It is all text and quite short. Actually, it is a letter version of the geographic coordinates. However, much easier to send to someone over chat, for example.

The best thing is that you can paste a mapcode into Here Maps and it will show you the location instantly.
