The ELTEdata-project, developed by the Department for Digital Humanities at the Eötvös Loránd University, aims to organize the soruces of prosopographical, bibliographical and other historical researches into semantic data network and publish them. The ELTEdata follows the Wikidata's data structure, connected to Wikidata based on the semantic statements and the entities. This way, ELTEdata can be interpret as a part of Wikidata, although is completly independent from it. The items have a unique identifier and every semantic statements can be described as a pair of property and value. The SPARQL semantic query language enables complex search and visualization on map or timeline. This feature makes possible to structure a large data set and seems to be useful during the description of the networks. The fusion with the external databases plays an important role in the formation of a semantic bibliography, therefore it is relevant to match some properties to their variants, contained in the interfaces of structured metadata.
Based on the encyclopdia of the Humanism in East Central Europe Research Group (HECE), this project is a prosopographical and bibliographical semantic database of humanistic authors from the historical Kingdom of Hungary in the period between 1420 and 1620.
