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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
