I'm trying to understand the parentFeature/childrenFatures/nearbyFeatures properties in the rdf dump and I've run across this example that I can't make sense of.

The feature antartica lists 8 parentFeatures. The first one is is New Zealand

Am I missing something where New Zealand can be a parent feature of Antartica? Argentina is another one.

Are these parent/child features built just from the admin heirarchy or are other features included from the heirarchy table?

While I'm asking I also don't understand how the nearby features are selected or where the dbpedia links are included. Are they the dbpedia/geonames links that dbpedia provides?
