Hi Karl!
That's quite nice, esp. the explanation page and the sample queries.

What repository do you use? I noticed some of the queries are slow...
If you want to try your hand at OWLIM (now called GraphDB), drop me a note.
It's used by some of the largest CH repositories (some of which were discussed here under the topic "SPARQL endpoints"): 
Europeana, Polish DL, British Museum, Getty vocabularies, YCBA, CHARISMA (conservation portal), 3D COFORM...

Your page says "Spatial queries on the graph await implementation of GeoSPARQL".
While OWLIM does not yet have full GeoSPARQL, it has checking by radius and bounding box, 
see http://vocab.getty.edu/doc/#Places_Within_Bounding_Box and the following few queries.
E.g. one is "find Castles near Mountains"
