TAB Liaison:

The group started in Jan 2017 and will close on June 2018. 

The goal of the Agrisemantics WG is to gather community-based requirements and use cases for an infrastructure that supports appropriate use of semantics for data interoperability, with special focus on agriculture.

The outputs of the WG will be:

  1. A report on semantics landscape for agricultural data,
  2. A set of use cases and requirements,
  3. A document on recommendations for the future of semantics for agricultural data - software, functionalities, semantic assets to enhance data interoperability in agriculture. 

Ongoing activities

  1. preparation of the first deliverable, on a landscape of the use of semantics for agricultural data. Current draft will be made available shortly. 
  2. bi-weekly calls. Register to the group to keep abreast of developments. 

Some shared resources

  1. A poster on semantics in agriculture - a visual introduction! Feel free to print it out and hang it to your door :) 

Upcoming group-related events:

  1. Hackaton @Montpellier
  2. workshop IN-OVIVE

Re: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][rda-wdinterop-wg][rda-agrisemantics-wg] A new article in F1000Research

Dear Esther, all,
I would like to thank you for this great collaborative work; it has been a
pleasure working on the document and collaborating with so many of you.
I am sure that the publication will have impact on related future work,
thanks to the adaptability of the approach described in different
contexts/fields/crops. I would be more than happy to contribute to any
similar effort in the future.
Kind regards,
