The PELAGIOS project blog has been a little silent recently. But certainly not because of the summer – but rather because of some busy work that has been going on behind the scenes! Today I’d like to present some results of this work: the alpha version of the PELAGIOS Graph Explorer (working title 😉
The Graph Explorer is a visualisation tool which lets you play with the data provided by the PELAGIOS partners, and explore the relations that now exists thanks to:
- the alignment of all data with the Pleiades Gazetteer
- the use of a common vocabulary to express place references
I’m planning to discuss the details – the components underneath the hood, the implementation, the Graph Explorer API – in a follow-up post. And there will also be a public demo instance you can try hands-on. But for now I’d just like to keep it short – and show what the tool looks like!
The first screencast explores how datasets from different PELAGIOS partners are related to each other through place. You can also view the original-resolution video for a clearer picture.
The second screencast takes the “inverse perspective” (so to speak) – and explores how different places in the PELAGIOS data are related to each other through data. The original-resolution video is here.
UPDATE: The online demo of the Graph Explorer is available at
