The idea arised with GMI Arnaud Cordier and new font has been created to help. On each diagram, some numbers appear laterally.

Am I right that this is exactly the same as duodecimal notation? See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duodecimal. I agree that this is an improvement over the currently used notation.

For a W x H board, using base-W linear notation is of course a natural set of coordinates.
