TAB Liaison:

WGs Wrapping up (from ~12 months after RDA endorsement)
 

The group started in Jan 2017 and should close shortly. 

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. 39 Hints to Facilitate the Use of Semantics for Data on Agriculture and Nutrition: Recommendations from the RDA Agrisemantics Working Group (for community review, please send your comments)

Ongoing activities

  • We are considering pathways for the adoption of the recommendations by the targeted stakeholders (data managers, semantics profesionnals, software developers, and policy makers and funders): paper; conferences, GO FAIR IN, institutional projects, and services etc.
  • We are considering the future of the group in RDA and outside

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 :)

Dear all,
I am forwarding you this email exchange with Evan Wallace from NIST, USA.
He shows a great interest in our group work and especially the recommendations. Wallace also provides some advice regarding the dissemination process to the application developers community. See below
Now that the recommendations have passed the community review process, we kindly invite you to consider:
