status: Recognised & Endorsed

Chair (s): brandon whitehead, Caterina Caracciolo, Sophie Aubin

Group Email: [group_email]

Secretariat Liaison: Stefanie Kethers


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 :)

  1. P14 in Helsinki: Agrisemantics recommendations adoption

GACS Core is not currently being updated and will not be actively maintained in the future

by Imma Subirats Coll

Dear colleagues. A meeting held on 5-6 November 2019 at FAO in Rome assessed the current status and future prospects for the Global Agricultural Concept Space (GACS) -- a Linked Open Data concept scheme created by mapping frequently-used concepts at the intersection of three major agricultural thesauri: the AGROVOC Thesaurus, the CAB Thesaurus (CABT), and NAL Thesaurus (NALT).
