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

The days of sitting home at the computer are coming to an end - It's time to Go Local.
