It would be really helpful if you could adopt/incorporate the What3Words database into the 'Find' function. It is an increasingly adopted location service and works really well if you want to navigate to/fly over or establish as waypoints specific locations that do not have an address or postcode.

W3W isn't free to use, and they've got a track record of litigation against those who use W3W without their permission. I suspect a licensing fee would be required in order for SkyDemon to have support. It may be free to you, but their business model is to charge for services to integrate with them.

I would encourage you to consider Open Location Codes instead. OLC is free to use, and integrated into Google Maps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Location_Code
