map<int, double>::iterator iterator = anumbermap.end();
iterator--;
double d = (iterator--)->second;

Is there a more elegant method for retriving the elements at two places from the end? Something like:
iterator -=  2
double d = iterator->second;

No, ++ and -- are the only overloads for this purpose.  The best you can do is:

for (char i=0;i<2;i++) iterator--;
