D3.5. Historical place names service

The aim of Task 3.5 is to develop a prototype application to enable local cultural institutions to collaborate in the development of am historical place name thesaurus and   to enrich the harvested/ingested metadata. This application is based on the results of the CARARE (Connecting Archaeology and Architecture into Europeana project1.

This  deliverable describes the LoCloud Historic Place Names  service (HPN), including the methodology for their development, and specifies their corresponding APIs. It also provides the documentation for the HPN services. These services are semi-automatic historical geo-information management functions and web services, designed for aggregation and re-use of digital heritage information.
