Found a nice project by Alan Godshaw who formed a kata dictionary, which lists many kata, their origins, name etymology and some other information about them. Very insightful. Can't guarantee that the content is accurate or verified, but still very impressive in my opinion:
Also on his site, a karate style list and their respective kata. At a first glance, doesn't look completely accurate, but still nice:
Another impressive list is his list of karateka:
His last karate project is a list of karate bibliography and major points from each publication:
Overall, very nice projects and an impressive contribution to the karate community, especially for the karate history lovers.
