The only way I know of doing it is to go to the "server" folder in your Altitude folder, where you should see a file called "generated_server.xml". Copy that file, and open the copied file with any plain text editor (you can edit the file directly, but I'd suggest editing a copy). In the file you should see <mapList>, with a list of maps then </mapList>. You may know xml, but assuming you don't I'd suggest copying any line such as <String value="tbd_lostcity" /> and replacing tbd_lostcity with the name of the map you want to play. The line should look like <String value="mapname" />.

If you like, you can also copy the list of maps under <mapRotationList>.

Once you've done this, host your server, and beside Config File select the file you just edited. Now, start your server, and if you aren't playing your map already, open that chatbox and type "/changemap (mapname)". As soon as you've typed "/changemap", a list of available maps should come up, and you should see your map there.

Hopefully this works, there may be an easier way of doing this, but I haven't looked into it.
