In the database explorer enter the desired centerpoint and select an area 
of 5.5 KM. This usually results in a list of points under 1000. Select 
'select all' in step 2 and all you have to do is go to the download page 
and collect the checklist. You can experiment with the area size to see if 
a larger area still fits in the below 1000 scheme.
