Case Statement: 

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.

A poster on semantics for data is available for use

Dear all,
I'm happy to share this poster with you. It was created at the occasion
of theGODAN summit with the collaboration of
the two brand new working groups Agrisemantics and Rice Data
This poster aims at promoting semantics to address issues resulting from
the various points of view on a same object in agriculture. The example
used is rice but it is easily transposable to other subjects. Feel free
to use and share it.
It is available in the WDI WG folder
