Add geographic location information to list of public maps

Tom Moritz

I propose you add the minimum and maximum latitude and longitude to the list of public maps.  Many people don't enter a map description or a limited description and the map name isn't sufficient to determine if the map is for Sister's Cabin in Colorado, or a map with a circumnavigation route around the Three Sisters near Bend, or the Sister's Loop off the PNW trail.  If you listed the range of latitudes and longitudes for elements on a map, then a user could determine if a public map was relevant without opening it.

Better yet, if a user could draw a rectangle on a map and request public maps with data that falls within that area, that would be great!
