Hi

  Excellent  feature!

  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.
