I've written an extension for MediaWiki called EmbeddedSemantics(ESem), which
makes it possible to annotate parts of the wikitext to get a semantic
representation using RDFa within the XHTML output. ESem allows you to make any
kind of Subject-Predicate-Object-statments using URIs and plain or typed
Literals, covering most of the RDFa possibilities. The annoations within the
wikitext are enabled by an extended wiki-syntax.

A fully working test installation providing further informations about ESem can
be found at [1].
There are also about 5500 testpages with geographical data. The ESem extension
can be downloaded at [2]. The test pages exist as MediaWiki export files at

The work was part of my Bachelor thesis which is much more detailed as the
informations provided at the mentioned pages. The thesis will be available
within the next few weeks (but only in German).
