#1050 API


  • For places we use the type "FeatureCollection", how should we name the other entities?
    --> We will use other type names. Bernhard will research for existing possibilities
  • Should we also use "feature": [] for other entities also? The thing is, that every information is in feature, but an actor doesn't have a "feature". Or do we say, it is ok "feature":[] includes any entity
  • Should we differentiate between E18 and E53? Alex and Bernhard would say no
    --> for the default output we will not differentiate between them, in a CIDOC related output we will
  • Should we use commet at "when": {"timespans":[]}? Is is technically no problem and an additional information some could need
    --> comments will be used
  • How long we want to maintain old API versions and how we implement a version system
    --> API URL we be like /api/entity/107 because the API won't have compatibility changes often, in case it does we'll do something like /api2/entity/107
  • What should happen, if a Type/Node is requested from the API? Should we show the parent and all sub types or only show parent?
    --> Only one level up and down (parent and subs). Maybe research how other peoples map categories in json-ld. One possibility is that we include the path as string.
  • What should happen with empty tags?
    --> ignore empty tags (don't write anything)

--> We will ask Rainer Simon about possibility to add other entities like actors or sources to the linked places format
