At UPM (Ontology Engineering Group) we have created geolinkkedata 
(http://geo.linkeddata.es/web/guest/home) in the geographical domain:

    *   Migrating  data from the Geographical Spanish Institute
    * linking them with geonames and dbpedia
    * Combining them with statistic information from the Stastic Spanish
      Institue

In our case, results  can be:

    * displayed in RDF, JSON, HTML,  XML
      (http://geo.linkeddata.es/web/guest/endpoints), and
    * browsed in a map
      (http://geo.linkeddata.es/web/guest/visualizacion-beta)

Enjoy the use of the endpoint :-)

Probably the only issue is that the document dates already back to more than a year ago, it's still a WD in progress (so to say since we didn't update it at all since then) and needs a review, an update and to be published as a Group Note. As usual, we would need IG volunteers to do so.
