Jim, inkel, thank you very much this has become a lot clearer.
One last comment, if I have a DAML resource which gives more detail
about the airport in question would it be possible for me to add, like
with people, an rdfs:seeAlso triple within the contact:nearestAirport
I'm guessing the answer's yes.
Thanks again guys,

It's not really "controlled" in any fixed sense.
You say your nearestAirport is an "airport" which has the iata code BZZ
the icao code EGVN, the codes are controlled by iata/icao, and are
the scope of RDF.
When you consume FOAF, you then need to rely on other RDF datasources
provide the information about airports with those codes.
inkel gave you Mike Dean's daml one.
For the foaf-people-map, I use my own at
http://jibbering.com/rdf/airports.1?BZZ (simply because SVG can't query
resources from other domains) So we don't need to control the
new airports appear all the time, and people need to use them, but we do
rely on people consuming the data to be able to go out and find more
information about the airport you've identified.
Think of the airport, the same as a foaf:Person, there's no controlled
but you can often find more information on a person from other RDF
If you think your airport is new, or doesn't have an iata or icao code,
could include the other information like lat/long etc. within your file,
then the semantic web would know, unfortunately my foaf-people-map is
simple to understand this (but could be made to without too much
but that's the general principle.
