The personal data repository is a project of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences. The goal of the project is to build a digital infrastructure for scientific biographical information.
A suite of web services are available to assist with the semantic enrichment of personal data with place names, dates and identifiers. The services include one for querying the repository, one for recognizing place names within text, one for recognizing dates within text, another for the transliteration of strings from Greek into the Latin alphabet and one for finding common identifiers for people. The APIs use HTTP calls and responses can be in XML, JSON or text. The site and documentation are in German.
