Plus codes are addresses for places where the streets are unnamed, or where there are no roads.

Overview
Plus codes make location information easier to use. Instead of two long numbers (atitude and longitude) there's a single, shorter code.

Most people in the world live on an unnamed street. Plus codes were created so that these people can have an address, so that they can receive deliveries, access emergency services, register to vote – and more. Plus codes are open source and free to use, for any purpose, forever.

Plus codes are based on latitude and longitude, so they already exist everywhere. The location 47°21'56.0"N 8°31'29.3"E has the plus code "8FVC9G8F+6W".

Plus codes can be converted to plus code addresses. These use place names and a short version of the code: "9G8F+6W, Zürich, Switzerland". This form is easier to recognise, and the shorter code means people have less digits to remember.

This add-on for Google Sheets allows you to convert between location coordinates and plus codes, using a menu function and additional sheet functions:

*  PLUSCODE
*  PLUSCODE_CENTER
*  PLUSCODE_LENGTH
*  PLUSCODE_BOUNDS

You can also convert between plus codes and addresses using the menu and additional functions:

*  PLUSCODE_TO_ADDRESS
*  PLUSCODE_FROM_ADDRESS

Plus codes use the Open Location Code algorithm, an open source Google project. See https://opensource.google.com/projects/open-location-code for links to the open source projects.

The addon does not work. Perhaps I'm missing another step, but when I run the PLUSCODE_TO_ADDRESS() function on the example plus code (9G8F+6W, Zurich, Switzerland), I get an error that this code is not a valid code. Installation was confusing. I also am unable to create a code from a valid address.

Excellent App. All the Geographers, Geospatial Scientists and other location based services like post office, Emergency Services and Polices shall use it. This shall reduce the big and complex address into a single cell digits like PIN Code.

Really needs to support "deg" in addition to "°", as many tools* which spit out GPS coordinates use deg by default. Being able to copy and paste lat/long from those tools is essential for minimal effort in converting. *e.g. Exiftool
