About this site

This is a proof-of-concept tool for exploring astrolabes that are known to Wikidata. You can improve it by adding to or improving Wikidata's entries about astrolabes, or about the makers or owners of astrolabes.

 

See the blog post "A global collection of astrolabes in linked open data".
