GeoNames Semantic Web

The GeoNames Ontology makes it possible to add geospatial semantic information to the Word Wide Web. All over 6.2 million geonames toponyms now have a unique URL with a corresponding RDF web service. Other services describe the relation between toponyms.

SPARQL endpoints for this data are made available by third parties. Geonames at Kasabi, and FactForge has it loaded as well.
