This kind of functionality would better help if it is directly
integrated to the LS application. It is hard to imagine Joe Average would
enter decimal coordinates to the website, downloading a file, un-gzipping
it, uploading it to another service, dowloading another file, storing it
to a suitable location and then importing it.
A single 'retrieve map data for N meters around this location' would
make LS almost a killer application.
