Here is just an idea to throw out there. Maybe a project someone can work on is making an app on a mobile device that allows you to make/edit maps and then have the ability to export it to your computer. Not sure if it would be widely used but I'm sitting at work bored out of my mind and I would enjoy this right now.

Doesn't seem really feasible to do the graphic-oriented part of mapping on the small phone resolutions; placing terrain, units, locations, and sprites would be problematic with the constrained view and general inaccuracy of a touchscreen.

I think the more code-oriented parts of mapping could well be made mobile though, such as triggers, map settings, and the coordinates of units and locations (for things like creating grid-systems)
