The map at http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/go-clubs_76310 was started by David Richfield because he loved OpenStreetMap and wanted a pretty map of Go clubs.
As of 2021-10-29 it included 791 clubs including 140 in Germany, 88 in France, 75 in the UK, 76 in the US, 70 in Italy, 46 in Russia, 27 in Canada, 23 in Switzerland, and 21 in the Netherlands.
The map is based on the database of go clubs at http://goclubdb.herokuapp.com/, which is free any visitor to edit.
The interactive map at https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zUFqP7eRibjg.k9aPlMDK_TPM was started by 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.
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 baduk.club or wheretoplaygo.com
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site automatically emails organizers to ensure the information is current and visitors are able to mark information as out-of-date or inaccurate.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 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 bubble.io, a no-code platform that allows anyone to help build things to enhance the Go community!
