Note: the domain seems to have lapsed as of 4/26/12, picked up by one of those scumbags that takes them up as soon as they're available. Who knows if they'll pay the ransom to buy it back... Sad day. :(

Igolocal is a Physical Go Server, Location service and Scheduling system by Chuck Thomas in 2010. The system makes heavy use of the Google Maps API with a phpBB backend, and lots of custom PHP and javascript.

Igolocal's [ext] original announcement on 30 July 2010:

 Starting today, the question: "Where are all the Go players?" finally has an answer.
 Announcing Igolocal.net, the first Physical Go Server and worldwide Go location service.
 From IgoLocal, you can:
 - Directly find local Go players who match your rank
 - Challenge them to Games by tagging a time and location on the map
 - Create open games for anybody in your area to accept
 - Find and Join local Go clubs
 - Create a Go Club that will be seen by the entire world
 - Manage your local schedule of Go-related activities
