RDA VSSIG Ontology Metadata Task Group Survey

Dear RDA WGs,
I transfer this to this 3 groups that I know and sometimes participate in, but feel free to transfer this to other metadata/standardization/ontologies related WGs.
Dear all,
[Apologies for multiple receptions - this announcement has been sent to multiple mailing lists of the ontology/semantic Web/linked data/standardization communities.]
If you are somehow familiar with the use of ontologies, please consider answering this survey.

Advice on new controlled vocabulary

Hi all,

I'm involved in a project to establish a global network for long-term agricultural experiments (experiments running for >10 years). One aim of the project is to improve access to and interoperability of datasets from these experiments. In most cases I think existing ontologies/vocabularies can be used, but experiment names, fields and plots are not represented by any controlled vocabularly. Clearly creating a concept ID for a name means an experiment, field or plot can be umabiguously referenced, e.g. in DOI metadata.
