area than I'm mapping other things, so I'd ideally like to register
two "areas" to see mappers' activity in:
  anything within 15km
  infrastructure with 50km
Others might, for example, want to register multiple geographical
areas (e.g. around home, and around their favourite holiday area), and
a few specialized mappers might want to see all activity of mappers
who have registered a particular interest keyword regardless of
