placekey

CORE
Placekey is a free and open universal standard identifier for any physical place, so that the data pertaining to those places can be shared across organizations easily. Since Placekey is based on H3, here we offer a way to transform to and from that index and delegate any extra functionality to H3 itself.
You can learn more about Placekey on their website or in the Spatial Indexes section of this documentation.
