Dylan Carter’s map on Google Maps

The interactive map at [ext] was started by [ext] Dylan Carter because he “liked the old igolocal”.

It is intended to be a map of all the go clubs in the world, but it also has layers for individual Go players, national Go associations, and internet Go servers.

As of 2019-04-23 it showed approximately 8 servers, 20 individuals and 120 organisations, of which approximately 70 were in Europe, 13 in North America, 7 in South America, 7 in Africa, 15 in Australasia, 5 in the Near East and 8 in the Far East.

Clubs tagged directly on Open Street Map

This [ext] Interactive Map of Go Clubs lets you explore all the current clubs on Open Street Map.

The map is based on the Go clubs that are currently mapped on [ext] OpenStreetMap with the tag [ext] club=baduk.

[ext] OpenStreetMap is a collaborative web site (like Sensei's Library), so anybody can add a Go club or edit an existing one. You can edit the club details (such as the contact links to Instagram) clicking on the pencil on the top right of the popups on the interactive map (you need an Open Street Map account).

This content can also be used by offline map software applications based on Open Street Map, thanks to the open data nature of the contribution.

BadukClub (

BadukClub aspires serve as the definitive map for Go clubs, Go players, and Go events. It's primary focus is being up-to-date, accurate, and widely used. The map is located at [ext] or [ext]

Launched in 2019, as of 2021-11-01 it showed 336 clubs, 682 players, and 3 tournaments (new feature).

In 2020-09-12 it had 267 clubs and 217 Go players. In 2019-09-30 it showed some 61 clubs and 15 Go players, of which 2 clubs were in South America, 2 in Asia, 12 in Europe, and the rest in North America.

Club data was initially populated by hand by the site administrators, but soon club organizers and players were able to add the information themselves. The site automatically emails organizers to ensure the information is current and visitors are able to mark information as out-of-date or inaccurate.

The map is only the start of what's coming at [ext] Baduk Club with lots of tools for organizers in beta. There is also a tool for running leagues, OGS tournaments, VGS tournaments, team tournaments, and arena tournaments.

Club admins are provided data on how often their listing was viewed as well as when. It also allows meetup attendees to record their games against one another.

Devin Fraze created the map to ease the new player experience, enhance Go communities, and assist Go organizers to better serve their communities. BadukClub is built entirely using [ext], a no-code platform that allows anyone to help build things to enhance the Go community!
