Here's a copy of Wikimedia's public domain world map, with some RDFa
embedded into it:

http://ontologi.es/place/map/BlankMap-World6-rdfa.svg

Also an N-Triples dump of the data extracted from it:

http://ontologi.es/place/map/BlankMap-World6-rdfa.nt

And the script used to produce it:

http://ontologi.es/place/map/map-annotator.pl.html

One could easily imagine adding in other RDFa data such as populations,
GDP, etc. Then with the RDFa API and a little Javascript, a web page
could apply colour coding to the map based on demographics (i.e.
highlight all countries with a per-capita GDP above 20,000 USD.)
