Re: [ANN] Add your links to DBpedia workflow version 0.1 (this is also an RFC)

I'll contribute some links to a vocabulary of NUTS codes. The Nomenclature of 
Territorial Units for Statistics [1] is a hierarchial organisation of 
administrative regions in Europe. It is heavily used by Eurostat, and LOD2 has 
converted the Eurostat datasets to RDF.

The word hierarchial lead me to my question. Would it be useful to contribute 
links to DBPedia that link two DBPedia resources together in a hierarchy, and 
what should the predicate be? SKOS broader/narrower seems to me to have too 
little semantic information about what kind of relationship it is. I.e. that 
it is a spatial form of broader/narrower.


Sincerely yours,
