type = vdw, gaussian, gaussian_max, coulomb, coulomb_neutral, coulomb_local

grid = float: grid spacing

selection = string: atoms about which to generate the map

buffer = float: cutoff

state > 0: use the indicated state

state = 0: use all states independently with independent extents

state = -1: use current global state

state = -2: use effective object state(s)

state = -3: use all states in one map
