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.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
