Using the API

Development of the external API is at an early stage. There will be several place and dataset endpoints with numerous filtering and search options, to: 1) the relational database, accessing records from contributed datasets, 2) the "union index" that gathers all place attestations (and related trace annotations) for a given place, and 3) a listing of contributed datasets.

Note that contributed records will have "permanent" URIs within the WHG system, allowing WHG to serve as a publisher of linked data for those projects unable to stand up per-record landing pages.

These are a few native Django REST API Framework screens available so far:
