Standards for Networking Ancient Prosopographies: Data and Relations in Greco-roman Names (SNAP:DRGN)
The Standards for Networking Ancient Prosopographies: Data and Relations in Greco-Roman Names (hereafter SNAP:DRGN or SNAP) project aims to address the problem of linking together large collections of material (datasets) containing information about persons, names and person-like entities managed in heterogeneous systems and formats.
SNAP:DRGN will publish recommendations and examples, with a view to encouraging: (i) the publication of minimal, consistent prosopographical data in RDF and compatible with the Linked Ancient World Data graph; (ii) building a loose network ancient prosopographical projects that will collectively contribute to a graph of millions of person-records; (iii) stand-off assertions of co-references or other relationships between persons, names and other prosopographical entities; (iv) Open Annotation Collaboration (OAC)-style RDF annotations of named entities in texts to point them to authoritative person-record-clusters in the SNAP:DRGN graph.
