Types of information in this systemFive types of information is stored:
a. Information on persons.
b. Information on events.
d. Places and peoples.
e. Other subjects.
Information on persons.
The problems of synonyms and homonyms can only be solved by giving persons a number.
Such a number could comprise some information, but in this system it does not: is more or
less arbitrarily assigned. It is displayed sometimes, because the same
number means a reference to the same person.
The database contains about 8000 persons together with some information about them, and more than 30000 links of most of these persons to Internet documents.
As can be seen from the menu different approaches to derive information from this database
are possible. Nearly always you get in the end a person and a list of documents.
In this person frame you will find a.o.:
Information on events.
The meaning of the word event is used quite broadly, becoming something like "subject". It is possible to find persons involved in an event, and images describing it. Events are mostly displayed in the form of a menu.
Images are given as a link to images elsewhere. A link to the original document containing the image, and the original size of the image is presented. The persons depicted are also displayed. In many cases the description of an image was not sufficiently detailed to determine all persons displayed. E.g., there are many paintings of the "Wedding of Peleus and Thetis", but which figure is which god cannot be determined.
Places, areas, and peoples.
The terms of this groups are organized into two entry-systems:
This includes terms describing war and warfare, metals, jobs, family-relations, families, religious terms etc.
as far as mentioned in edited sources.
