Pelagios: The Information Superhighway for the Ancient World
- Pelagios is funded by JISC in successive programmes (Geospatial and Community Outreach; Resource Discovery), 2011-2012
The aim of Pelagios is to help introduce Linked Open Data goodness into online resources that refer to places in the Ancient World. By providing a cookbook (of guidelines and schema) for annotating, cataloguing and visualizing references to ancient places, Pelagios enables researchers or curators working with the ancient world to make their resources more discoverable, accessible and usable to others. By also developing a series of widgets and a Graph Explorer, Pelagios also empowers students, researchers and the general public to discover the cities of antiquity and explore the rich interconnections between them.
