Hi everyone,

Many tools have been build on top
http://toolserver.org/~erfgoed/api/api.php . Toolserver is quite
overloaded so I build a second api with the same codebase. It's a bit
more limited, but should work much better for automated tools. You can
find it at http://tools.wmflabs.org/heritage/api/api.php . The mobile
app also uses this one.

See for example
for the monuments in my city.

Most of the load will be on the database, statistics about that on
