The nice folks at World66 have created a nice interface for generating an image with visited countries highlighted, but while it would be easy to check a few boxes and copy the code to somewhere on my blog pages, that wouldn’t make it possible for the semantic web to figure out where I’ve been. For that reason, I decided to mint a set of vocabulary terms for visits according to Norm Walsh’s country counting rules, collected in the visit vocabulary, and have WordPress output the information in my FOAF profile – thanks to the extensibility of my FOAF Output Plugin. Of course, the FOAF Explorer now also understands these terms, displaying maps of the world, Canada and USA when appropriate — see for yourself!
The current version is 1.1.
- Changes since 1.0:
- Added visits to Canadian regions.
- Fixed “wrong”
- The URIs for US states are now correct, pointing at the

http://www.daml.ri.cmu.edu/ont/State.damlwhich only contains classes and properties.
