Its pretty useful actually. Its an invisible unit that reveals a certain amount of shroud on the map. If you want the player to see a certain location but have no units there, you can use map revealers. It is suggested to use them in with triggers, because if you place them in the map editor, there is no way to delete them manually (I think).

You can delete them... well kinda. You will have to paste another portion of the map over top of it.

You also can use a Remove object trigger to make them disappear and of course use a create object trigger to say make a "moving fog" effect.

I think he means a moving light effect, so that the visible, unfogged area created by the map revealer will "move". Actually the map revealers will be created and deleted so that the lighted area seems to move across the screen. Get it?

Or you oculd have lots of map revealers on the outside and none on the inside of the circle, and the inside will be dark. This would be way more ocmplex but if you shifted the map revealers using triggers then the effect would be a moving cloud.
