Re: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Feedback needed on a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice

Greta work I like very much the design and illustration

to complete the mapping between point of view

biologist taxon id (it should be taxon name) is equivalent to scientific
name in information manager

sociologist should have taxon name in their view (linked to the biologist)

chef and consummer should have variety ( I don't know if it is the same
variety like for breeder and farmer) I think of basmati and so on...

note that the variety of farmer is not linked to others...

RE: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Feedback needed on a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice

Hi Sophie,

This looks very nice. Here my first comments, in bullets:

1. In Information Manager, the point of multilinguality could be more explicit, and have terms in other languages than EN, nicely also in a different script. With rice that would seem rather appropriate :)

2. The Biologist is not linked. An easy way would be to link "Taxonomy" in that box to "scientific name" in the Information Manager box.

RE: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Feedback needed on a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice

Sophie,

I like very much how the rice poster shows some interactions among different actors. I work primarily at the grower level, and think some other actors and interactions are important to the grower and pose semantic interoperability challenges. This may be too much detail, and either merit a separate poster, or not be what you want. In any case, here are some examples:

Re: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Feedback needed on a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice

Sophie,

Some ideas after a quick look.

1. I like some of the terms in the Concepts diagram that might be employed
in the Semantic Richness diagram. For example using "medical use" and
"popular belief" as part of Sociologist rather than "God" as you currently
have.

2. The dotted, connecting lines work for me and "Yield" seems to be one of
the central ideas, although you don't connect the Biological concepts to
that idea.
Biologist and Sociologist are the only boxes that don't have a connection
but they might.

Feedback needed on a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice

Dear all,

Please find attached the 1st version of the poster I've just received.
Many thanks to all of you who already helped me. It is not finished yet!
If you feel like doing some comments, please do by tomorrow 14:00 CEST.
The text in white labels needs to be revised. I join a new proposal.
What do you think about it? Are the items representative enough of each
point of view?

Kind regards,
Sophie

RES: [SPAM] [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Help needed to design a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice example

Dear Sophie: great design!

I do not know if my contributions will meet your expectations but I send them for general discussion. The most important, to me, is to add the concepts of "data sets" or "data repository" because is there where ultimately semantic technologies will be applied aiming interoperability. I tried to design this in the following figures. The exercise was very routing and, therefore, endless! So I decided to send my first and immediate insights. I separated into two figures not to overload the design and hinder understandings.

I used:

Sophie et al,

I see that some ideas for a Science Use Case are developing. One idea that
occurred to me is that the Wheat Group may have generated a use case that
could be leveraged and adapted.
Perhaps someone from that domain could comment.

Re: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Help needed to design a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice example

Dear Gary, all,

Moving the issues on the diagram seems a good idea. I'll suggest it to
the society that will build the poster.
I really like the idea of a use case but I am not able to design one. If
some expert of rice could propose one or two, it would really help.

Best,
Sophie

Re: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Re: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Help needed to design a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice example

I see two possible use case

one focus on document and information ressource exchange able to adapt
at different domain (agriculture, agronomie, cooker and so on) and
granularity

so it is a document management use case.

one focus on spatio temporal data integration based on observation (crop
observation, species observation)...

Thus for example some comparaison, integration, search aggregation issue
should be presented.

it is a data management use case.

Re: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Help needed to design a poster on semantics for agriculture data - rice example

Sophia

You have put a good deal of work into the diagram, which looks like a first
sketch of a conceptual model.

One thing you could do is to move, maybe all of the issues onto the
diagram. For example you can illustrate different levels of granularity
and also synonyms.
One other idea might be to employ a use case to organize and feature some
relations between concepts.
