Thanks very much Kingsley,

I thought I should better check that I have interpreted you suggestion
correctly.

For the vocabulary that I have made, I need to add the following statements?

<http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#> rdfs:isDefinedBy  <
http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#>

<http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#Area> rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#>

<http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#radius> rdfs:isDefinedBy
<http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#>

In reading the rdfs documentation, it appears as if I should also be making
statements about the other vocabularies.

It is not quite clear to me when it is proper to make statements about other
vocabularies in your own vocabulary

So I am asking for your guidance. :-)

Do I also add the following?

<http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#> rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#>

<http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#SpatialThing rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#>

<http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#Point rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#>

<http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#lat rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#>

<http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#long rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#>

as well as:

<http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/page> rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/>

<http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/topic> rdfs:isDefinedBy <
http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/>

Thanks :-)
