Allow the user to create layers on the fly where the layer shows a circular or rectangular area. These areas can either be 'drawn' on screen using the mouse, based on a radius or distance from a given lat/long, or based around a point source in a vector layer. The user should be able to also select the colour/texture and give the ayer a name.
I would use this for identifying/highlighting areas of interest.
