Tool use case:

Users can create one or more data files and upload them to a special area of the ``Resources'', e.g. ``Resources/Maps''. These could be used in a similar way to the ``Presentation'' tool, e.g. the user goes into the ``Map'' tool and selects which of these dara sets to overlay on the map.


Help information for tool users:

Yahoo Map uses the geo-vocabulary from the W3C Semantic Web Interest Group, see http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/. This is combined with RSS 2.0 and Dublin Core.
