Pleiades Plus is an experimental machine alignment between Pleiades place resources and content in the GeoNames Gazetteer.

It pairs Pleiades URIs with GeoNames URIs when a given pair seems likely to identify the same place. Conceived and prototyped by Leif Isaksen (University of Southampton/Pelagios Project), the current version is produced daily by Ryan Baumann (Duke Collaboratory for Classics Computing). Like all of Pleiades' native data serializations, you can download the Pleiades Plus dataset for free from the Pleiades Download page.
