LP Network

While not the responsibility of the Linked Pasts Steering Committee, which is limited to the annual symposium, the Linked Pasts Network refers to a growing collection of historical datasets published as Linked Open Data and the community of researchers across the globe whose projects are producing and using them. The nature of this emerging network is discussed at the Linked Pasts series of international symposia.

This site and repo are just getting under way. This visualization is a partial view of the projects and supporting organizations within the “geospatial region” of the network. Further information about Linked Pasts can be found in a Dec 2017 white paper, “From Linking Places to a Linked Pasts Network”.

The Linked Pasts Network was inspired by work such as the Pelagios Network and Association, the Linked Ancient World Data Institute (2012–13) and the LAWD Ontology.
