aoe2 uses x coordinate + y coordinate
You could use Map ID + X + Y-Coordinate
Else if your system could handle it: Giga coordinates like 4721, 12117
Before doing anything I would know if it is possible to:

Currently I done some research on the terrain restrictions on aoe2 and found it out to be very interesting.
It has headers and data containing data about which terrain ID's can be accessed by the restriction type and which cannot, also data like how projectiles die, if they fall in water it gives a splash, dust could give a little cloud and ground gives a decaying arrow.
also misc data is linked like what terrain ID gives what foot/wheel whatever other track graphics when units walk over them.
