Case Statement: 
WGs Maintaining deliverables (maintenance group)

Deliverables: Wheat data guidelines, Wheat data vocabularies portal

The Wheat Data Interoperability Working Group aims to provide a common framework for describing, representing linking and publishing Wheat data with respect to open standards.Such a framework will promote and sustain Wheat data sharing, reusability and operability. Specifying the Wheat linked data framework will come with many questions: which (minimal) metadata to describe which type of data? Which vocabularies/ontologies/formats? Which good practices? Mainly based on the the needs of the Wheat initiatiative Information System (WheatIS) in terms of functionalities and data types, the working group will identify relevant use cases in order to produce a “cookbook” on how to produce “wheat data” that are easily shareable, reusable and interoperable.

Dear all,
IGAD has been invited to report about the last developments at the OGC Agriculture DWG meeting in December. On behalf of IGAD, Patricia, co-chair, will participate with a presentation (30min) remotely. Could we kindly ask to all the WG chairs to submit a couple of slides with a summary of the last developments of your WGs during the next weeks? In case that any of you would like to have a more proactive participation, please let us know.

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,
