Pete,

In your ontology you should add a triple that associates your classes 
and properties to <http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl>. 
Of course, you could also add the following:
To save time I've done the following via SPARUL re. URIBurner instance:

## updated graph <http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#>

insert into <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#>.
}

## updated graph <http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#>

sparql
insert into <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>.

}

You can see the effects of these new triples at:

1. 
http://uriburner.com/describe/?url=http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ontology/dwc_area.owl#Area 

2. 
http://lod.openlinksw.com/describe/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2003%2F01%2Fgeo%2Fwgs84_pos%23 
-- used this becuase there is more data and hardware behind this data 
space, so you get full effect
