An interesting new geolocation system comes to us from Japan via LocaPoint.. for example, Fort Collins CO can be located via the following: LocaPoint: SW3.FK6.NN3.XC8
From the website... LocaPoint is the state-of-the-art location pointer code that can express any location of the world, only with 12 letters.
