Interesting idea; I however checked Amsterdam and London and can't find any locations there. If your database is limited to a few cities only, best would be to let visitors click on those cities rather than typing it in and most likely not finding it. Unless I'm doing something wrong?

@footer Hey Amin, thanks for the tip! I have pre-filled few venues in Canggu, Ubud, Bangkok, Seoul, Budapest, Berlin, Medellรญn, Madrid, Prague, Lisbon and Ho Chi Minh City. The original idea was to use one or more data source(s) for the venues and let the visitors only upvote/downvote them, but it got a bit problematic. Generally, the data was unreliable. Examples: You can't really use Google places API on non-google map. Foursquare has lots of data, but it's very inaccurate and often misleading (shows places which don't exist anymore). Mapbox itself has really limited coverage in Asia. Yelp doesn't have category for Coworks. Tomtom offers maps but no venues. HERE has little data overall. So that's why I have decided to allow anyone to add any place and make it crowdsourced.
@petrnagy Sure, that's not the issue that I was talking about. For me, if I visit your site and search several well-known capitals and don't find a single co-working spaces in them, I will not bookmark the page and will likely not return later. So perhaps priority should be to add several spaces in top expat cities, that's my 2 cents.
@footer Yep, will do!
Sup Hunters! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm Petr and this is a small side-project of mine. While having a lot of experience with working remotely, never have I combined it with traveling. That is, until last year. The problem As many others, I work from coworking spaces and cafรฉs. Coworks especially are freakin' great! Gathering similar minded, interesting people. Hosting great events and talks. ๐Ÿ‘ โ€žCool. So what?โ€œ Boredom Living like a digital nomad and working from the same place every day sucks . It's like the olden days. Wake up and commute to the same office every morning. Blah! Coverage Coworks are not everywhere. Hell, even suitable cafรฉs with a good wifi are sparse in a lot of places. As a solution, I try to kick off ๐Ÿš€ this crowdsourced map of places suitable for remote work. Help me and pin ๐Ÿ“Œ your favorite ๐Ÿ˜ spot!

@petrnagy big peter :) this is awesome! one of the categories on 'WTF should I do in... ?' (we launched today on PH) is coworking places, but this is a more elegant way to display the locations for this specific problem. congrats! PS: I lived in Budapest a few years ago, too. Let me know if you have any other suggestions to add to (

Good idea, u have such a problem and mapsme or google map can't solve it. I've added some of my favorite places and i guess at first step u need a campaign which can help you generate a list of spots, marks and comments for them. then it would be perfect site for me)


- it's a real problem, not even in travelling, but even sometimes in your native city


- there not enough locations yet for some cities

Thanks Anna for taking time and using the product! Indeed the lack of data for some areas is a pain right now, one of the first things I will solve.
It's so great!!!
@emily_tran213 Nice to hear that!
