A project that's a few years old but I've only come across recently. This would have come in handy back when I played heavily, and I am posting a link for anyone who finds this of interest. Below I'll copy and paste the information found on the page (link to page, downloads at bottom):

(edit: Apparantly the original hosting site is temporarily down. Alternate downloads can be found here.)

Ever wanted to know which Elite Skill Salani Pippip in Witman's folly was using to poison you? Which Green weapon the Acolyte of Balthazar was wielding as he cut through your party of hero's and your beloved Flamingo? And who will take the Putrid Cysts off your hands before they start to smell? Well the answer to all these questions, and more can be found in MappingOut, a tool designed by a Guild Wars player for Guild Wars players, for identifiying elite skill locations, green "unique" weapons, collectors and much much more.

Sounds like a nice little tool here, great find Franc!

I'll have to give this a try sometime. I'm just using Xfire's ingame browser right now along with the Wiki for reference purposes but wiki is fairly cumbersome for some things and a lot of the maps are small and hard to read. This sounds like it's definitely worth a look.
