Q - question

What do geolocation codes like 8FWPXFCF+82 or 33UVQ61402434 mean?

A - answer Text strings with a similar code format are encoded geographic location data, according to the so-called "Open Location Code" (OLC) or the military "MGRS Code" also known as "USNG Code".

Interactive conversion of your location, postal address, GPS or W3W location into this code is provided by the online map data converter, here in the Converters section - see e.g.:

Open Location Code, abbreviated as "OLC", is a system for identifying the location of any place on Earth. It was developed by Google in Switzerland and published in October 2014. The codes generated by OLC are also called "plus codes".

MGRS (Military Grid Reference System) is a system of geographic coordinates used in NATO. It is based on the Mercator transverse coordinate system and on the United States National Grid (USNG) and covers the entire surface of the Earth.
