BP Group Location
BP Group Location is a plugin for BuddyPress that allows you to add a location (name, lat, long) to a BuddyPress group. It uses (a remotely hosted version of) the wonderful Leaflet library, in companion with Leaflet.GeoSearch and its OpenStreetmap add-on. The latter files are included here as well and comes under the same license.
If you want to update or host these files yourself, as of right now you have to download them manually and hack the plugin accordingly. The same goes with changing the map provider from OpenStreetmap to something else that Leaflet.GeoSearch supports.
The global map on the Groups Directory page currently shows up to 100 group markers. If you want to raise this level you must hack the plugin (or contribute here by adding support for e.g. marker clusters :)
