Hi LOD'ers,

In the GeoSpecies data set I have a predicate isExpectedIn.

This is used to state that a given species is expected in a geographical
area.

Most of the time I use the geonames features as the object

So <

http://lod.geospecies.org/ses/mCcSp<http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/lod.geospecies.org/ses/mCcSp>
geospecies:isExpectedIn<http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/rdf.geospecies.org/ont/geospecies%01isExpectedIn>

   - http://sws.geonames.org/6255149/<http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/sws.geonames.org/6255149/>
   - http://sws.geonames.org/5279468/<http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/sws.geonames.org/5279468/>
   - http://sws.geonames.org/4862182/<http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/sws.geonames.org/4862182/>
   - http://sws.geonames.org/5037779/<http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/sws.geonames.org/5037779/>
   - http://sws.geonames.org/5001836/<http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/sws.geonames.org/5001836/>

I also do the reverse link so you can query what species are in what
geonames feature

<!-- Wisconsin State Link Out -->
  <geospecies:State rdf:about="http://sws.geonames.org/5279468/">
    <geospecies:hasExpectationOf
rdf:resource="http://lod.geospecies.org/ses/mCcSp"/>
  </geospecies:State>

At present this just get's me to county, and I have always wanted to get
something that was more uniform and global.

This would need URI's that are of a grid equally sized polygons that are
either equal in X, Y by either decimal degrees or meters.

I marked up this example, that is a one tenth decimal degree by 1 tenth
decimal degree. It is rectangular in actual distance (meters/kilometers)

http://lod.taxonconcept.org/examples/geogrid/10/N93d0_37d1_W93d0_37d1.rdf

What I am wondering is, is there already an existing set of URI's that do
the same sort of thing?

Has anyone been able to create valid RDFa that also works with GoogleMaps?

Thanks!

- Pete
