Pelagios API Alpha Launch!Those of you following us closely (especially through our twitter account) will have noticed that we have - almost silently - started to populate our all-new Pelagios API with data from our partners. The API is the centerpiece of our Workpackage 1, and exposes human- and machine-readable views (HTML, JSON and RDF) on the place references we aggregate from our partners.
From a user's point of view, the API will currently tell you things such as:
- Which Pelagios partners have data available for a particular place? (For example: Athens, Rome or Pompeii.)
- What are the datasets currently listed by Pelagios, and what can you expect to find in there? (For example: Arachne, FASTI Online, nomisma or the Ure Museum.)
- What is the data available for a particular place, in a particular dataset? (For example: Open Context Data for Petra, or texts from the Perseus Digital Library referencing Sparta.)
