Document shapefile map driver

I think this map driver could be usable to use data for overview map from

I agree, that we need docs for all features that are available :)

Personally I think we should put our very limited ressources currently more to OSM etc. as it's one of the leading public geodata ressources and also assimilates other sources. Also the work with shapefile might cause a lot of errors and needs more support.

Anyway, in the end we just need somebody who does the job ;)
