The DBpedia Wayback Machine

DBpedia is one of the biggest and most important focal point of the Linked Open Data movement. However, in spite of its multiple services, it lacks a wayback mechanism to retrieve historical versions of resources at a given timestamp in the past, thus preventing systems to work on the full history of RDF documents. In this paper, we present a framework that serves this mechanism and is publicly offered through a Web UI and a RESTful API, following the Linked Open Data principles.
