Yes, thats correct. At least I would be interested, what people think about
how useful it would be to have that.

Thanks for the information!

By the way, nobody responded so far w.r.t "NameNet". Any WWW-servers
storing biographic information on people?

Regards

Heiko

Re "LocationNet":

There are several geographical name servers on the Web that store
information about geographical features (including cities, etc).
The Alexandria Digital Library gazetteer mentioned by Simon Cox
is a godd place to start. Another source, limited to US names,
is the USGS Names Information system:

http://www-nmd.usgs.gov/www/gnis/gnisform.html

There is a list of place name servers on the Internet at:

http://www.asu.edu/lib/hayden/govdocs/maps/geogname.htm

I don't know if this page is accessible from outside ASU; if you
can't access it let me know.

Since this is on the RDF list, I assume you (Heiko) are interested
in RDF markup of this information?
