How Pleiades considers and models citation of external resources

Up to now, Pleiades has allowed citation of external resources in a very limited way. This document describes the next step toward richer and more useful citations.

Citations from Places

A Pleiades Place object has as its primary topic some entity of the ancient world. Other resources also describe the same ancient place and we're going to use citations of see also and see further type to link to those resources.

Citations made from places

See also and see further are equivalent to cito:citesAsRelated and cito:citesForInformation from CiTO, the Citation Ontology, respectively. All of the references that Pleiades has brought from the Barrington Atlas are of type see further.

Citations from Locations and Names

Pleiades Location and Name objects embody a number of assertions. To back them up we aim to cite arguments in books and articles and features on maps, and cite as evidence factual resources like a recording of an object bearing a name or a site survey. The external resources shown below are illustrative, not exhaustive.

Citations made from locations and names

Cites and cites as evidence are taken directly from CiTO.
