I used such data to display Google maps in author profiles recently.
Example: <http://ig-bkh.de/mitglied/toscho/>

On the first request I took the address of the member and pulled the Geo  
data from Google:

Then I stored this as a meta value in the profile (with slightly different  
names than suggested by Michael).

If WP integrates a Geo data API it should cover author profiles too to  
make this interoperable.
