Introducing POI: record your points of interest in a Google Maps application and export them as bits of RDF.

I used it to make a quick map of the MBTA's Silver Line data based on others' renderings of where those buses stop.

I also grabbed the data on T stops from this fellow's Boston Subway Google Maps javascript and wrote a quick function that turned his arrays into RDF.

So now I have all the stations and some (but not all) graph linkage data between stations. For... Well, I'll get to the purpose eventually. For now, play with POI.

Of course, props to my Hawaiian friends - yes, I do enjoy the eponymous food.
