Hi Juan,

There is an interesting article in the Journal "Science" this week[1].  Linked Data concentrates on Mechanized Agent to Mechanized Agent interaction with the assumption that Person to Person interaction is the same ... maybe it's not.

Physical data about a region is available - sunshine and weather, for example[2], but you need to have a little geographic pre-filtering (a right join to be exact) so that you do not have to process 500+ million triples just to "discover" the rudimentary administrative framework.

The ISWC is in Bonn, which has sunshine like the rest of North Rhine-Westphalia[3] (within 2 minutes, but check it yourself[4]).  There is an ODS spreadsheet giving the UN/LOCODE entries for North Rhine-Westphalia [5].  These are by definition "internal points" just like the Hotel in Bonn.  The status and function codes are in a PDF available directly from http://unece.org/
