Unfortunately no. At least not at the moment. The tile boundaries and 
numbers vary between updates which makes keeping lists up-to-date difficult.

But I can imagine that users specify their own bounding box (polygon) of 
interest and let the website select the appropriate tiles that fit the 
polygon. This already works for the countries, so it should not be a 
huge deal to implement for user defined polygons. Would this meet your

No. Maps are updated approximately once a week.

Two options:

- They can select Austria from the drop-down menu and start downloading 
immediately (only one person has to request the Austria map and wait for 
the server to complete the request).

- If everyone selects the same tiles for their custom request then they 
will (currently) have to enter their email address but the server will 
render the custom request only once and send an email with the download 
link to all who entered their email.

Perhaps I should enable the check for already available maps for custom 
maps as well. But this will generate an AJAX request to the server for 
every tile (de-)selected though...
