Interesting idea but (1) would only work for real-earth scenarios and
(2) depends on being able to find the lattitude/longitude for a tile
which is not currently supported (unless you assume the scenario map
runs from -180 to +180 longitude and -90 to +90 latitude which is not
the case for most).
Nonetheless it wouldn't be too hard really.
