Most of the models are per-cell. I'd like to be able to turn them on
and off, but the javascript to do this has not been written.

I'd also like to be able to generate spot models for a given point,
like you suggest, but this will require automating Radio Mobile or
Splat!. I haven't had time to work on this myself.
