About Pcodes A place code (p-code) system is a way to reduce ambiguity and increase clear communication about the specific location of an event. Using place names can prove to be challenging, however, and may lead to confusion and lack of understanding among humanitarian actors. Variables such as multiple languages, different spellings within the same language for the same city, and political factions using different names increase confusion and lack of understanding among humanitarian actors. A p-code system utilizes a combination of letters and numbers to identify a location rather than a traditional place name system.
