We have designed an architecture for SPQR. The architecture consists of a triple-store of humanities data, populated from existing data sets using RDF imports, XSL transformations from XML, web scraping of HTML pages and querying of REST endpoints. The architecture provides services to support browsing of the linked data, running SPAQRL queries over it, running full-text searches to return RDF nodes, linking new data and proposing new links within the existing data. We plan to implement this architecture using off-the-shelf, tried-and-tested linked data components where possible, while striving to deliver an integrated front-end for users. We hope to evolve the architecture and discuss it in detail during an “all hands” project meeting in the first week of November.
