some relavant stuff that I linked from
a few days ago...

Any work on U.S. Postal info, like city/state/zip? Can I print mailing
labels from RDF data?

    * [WWW]An RDF Schema for United States Postal Addressing Standards
by DanConnolly (in RDF/N3)
    * [WWW]jobieLabels.pl in [WWW]swap pim works in limited cases
(specific RDF schema, printer, avery label size); though it's written in
perl and you could adapt it to your situation. 

How can I map city names to latitude/longitude?

    * see CityLookup, a use case for mapping weather underground data to
lat/long with cwm

I suggest

:Thursday xsdt:date "2002-04-10".
:London a cyc:UrbanArea; is cyc:inRegion of iata:LGW;
  map:cityName "London";
  cyc:inRegion [ map:countryName "United Kingdom].
# london is an urban area in which we find the LGW airport.
# re map:cityName vs rdfs:label vs. dc:title, I'm still
# noodling. see esw:PropertiesForNaming

:me cyc:subAbstrac [
  is cyc:temporallySubsumes of :Thursday;
  cyc:objectFoundInLocation :London

# i.e. "a timeslice of myself temporally subsumed by this
# thursday isfound in London."
# cf http://www.cyc.com/cyc-2-1/vocab/time-vocab.html#subAbstrac

You could use quoting and/or microtheories, but that
seems like overkill to me:

{ :me cyc:objectFoundInLocation :London } cyc:holdsIn :Thursday.

:me cyc:subAbstrac [
  cyc:objectFoundInLocation :PaddingtonStation;
  cyc:temporallyIntersects "2003-04-11T0900"^^xsdt:dateTime

A simple way:

:me foaf:workPlace [ cyc:inRegion :Bristol ].

For a richer way, see
  Implementing defaults and log:notIncludes
  Tutorial: Reaching out onto the Web

:busStopA geo:lat "20"; geo:long "30";
  :within10YardsOf [
    is cyc:subAbstrac of :Bus34;
    cyc:temporallyIntersects "2003...."^^xsdt:dateTime].

:within10YardsOf rdfs:subPropertyOf cyc:near.
