An open webservice for OCR that can handle Swedish Blackletter print as well as Roman type print. Developed within the project A free cloud service for OCR.

The Swedish PoliGraph

The Swedish PoliGraph is a semantic graph over politicians in the Swedish parliament, including their roles and presence in the parliament. The whole graph is available as a Prolog application and as a Pengines-server. Additionally, a web demo allows one to search for politicians' names and see what roles they have had, and a filtering that enables one to see what politicians were in the parliament on a given date.
