The Entity Authority Tool Set (EATS) is a web application for recording, editing, using and displaying authority information about entities. It is designed to allow multiple authorities to each maintain their own independent data, while operating on a common base so that information about the same entity is all in one place.
EATS also comes with client tools for automatically looking up entities in a text by name and adding appropriate TEI markup.
* A web API for importing and exporting entity data
* Robust searching with support for variant name forms
* Support for exporting entity data in a variety of formats

The Gascon Rolls Project uses EATS to record entity information and aid
markup of the TEI XML as part of automatically creating indices of
people and places.
