Would this be covered under the database that tnb80 has set up?

Not really. His database lists the stats for the maps, but it's not actually sortable. If you wanted, for instance, to design a tournament using all maps that have 1-way portals, you couldn't conveniently click on "1-way" in the database and get a list of only those maps. You would have to go through each of the 200 descriptions and manually extract the information.
