A hackerspace, hackspace, or makerspace (from Hacker and Space) is a real (as opposed to virtual) place where people with common interests, usually in science, technology, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and collaborate. See Wikipedia and Hackerspaces.org.

User:Rorym has made a slippy map based on the hackerspaces in the OSM database (currently offline).

How to Map

Add a node at the centre of the hackerspace and add leisure=hackerspace to it. You should name it with name=*. You may also wish to consider noting its telephone number, website (with website=*) or address (eg addr:full=*) if such information is available.

Related tags

You can often find Club-Mate in hackerspaces, so drink:club-mate=yes is often an usual combination.

If the hackerspace also offers repair services, consider the tag repair=*.
