API: Other jsonld mappings beside linked-places
For a while now, I searched for a suitable mappings for our other main categories (actor, source, reference, event). Sure there are schemas and mappings for contemporary persons or events but nothing really historical. Also linked traced (https://github.com/LinkedPasts/linked-traces-format) will not be suitable for us.
OA-dev session: Even if we do new json formats for actors, source etc. we only apply them to the direct entity view or download from the UI. The communication with the frontend will still be with the linked places geojson format.
If you have any suggestions, please say so. Otherwise, we need to write our own mapping.

I looked into prosopogrAPhI but found it not really useful to us, since OA is not based on a factoid model. The information given is quite sparsely compared to what OA can and have to present to stay connected to other entities. I looked into https://apis.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/person/49290 and their model would be more suitable. But it is not JSON-LD compatible, since they have no context.
So right now, I see only Person from schema.org suitable for the task. But in reality, I think we need a real use case to develop our own json-ld format respectively adept the linked-places format.
And if other mappings are really wanted we need to make a workshop to develop these mappings with use cases and specialists.
I push back this issuse on my personal timeline, since right now, we don't have a real use case.
