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:
We are still busy testing and completing the current implementation, as well as getting all our partners' data included. Plus, we're adding more advanced features, so watch this space - and be prepared for the occasional downtime as we are deploying updates... But apart from that, you are more than welcome to browse around, try it out, and let us know your feedback!
