RE: [rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] Poster on semantics for data (ex rice) is available

Dear Sophie,
Thank you so much for sharing all these updates with us. As regards the poster, it looks really attractive and contains much more information that I expected – on top of that, I believe that the format used makes it really easy to adapt to other crops (in the future) and reuse it in a slightly different context (I always pay attention to potential reusability of outcomes).
I am really looking forward to hearing more from the WG.
Warm regards,
Vassilis

Dear Sophie,
Thank you for sharing the poster – much appreciated indeed!! It looks very nice and I believe it will be useful to many of us to spread around the seeds of semantics ☺
I am very glad the Agrisemantics WG was well received. Looking forward to continuing on it with you all!

Poster on semantics for data (ex rice) is available

Dear all,
Back from GODAN summit , I want to thank you
all for your contributions in building this poster. I'm sorry that I
could not transcribe all your ideas - some where not compatible, some
came too late. Schedule was so tight that the agency did not accept my
last requests, e.g. it was too late to introduce the input supplier,
which I regret.
Anyway, I'm glad to share the final version with you and hope that
you'll appreciate. You'll find it in the working groups

Re: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][rda-wdinterop-wg][rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg] RDA 8th Plenary Joint meeting: IGAD Slots

Dear Gary,
 
Based on the indication of attendance we collected from the Agrisemantics group, you, Imma and Devika from IGAD will be in P8. You can liaise onsite with Imma on the breakout. Devika just informed us that she is unfortunately unable to attend due to problems
at her departure from Bangalore.
 
I wish you and the group fruitful & enjoyable meetings!
 
Best
Caterina

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

Hello Sophie, all,
first I have to say that this is a very good poster.
Please find my comments bellow.
Biologist:
You should remove the piece of DNA above the name biologist.
Taxonomy
Parts ? What do you mean
Growth phase <=> Growth stages
Growing environnement <=> Growing conditions
Breeder:
Yield <=> Yield potential
Issues:
Silos ? do you mean databases silos ?
Regards
Pierre

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...

Hi Sophie,
I hope not to be late for a few additional suggestions . Today is a national holiday in Brazil ... just now I checked my inbox mail !
1. Additional link between "biologist" and "Sociologist": "growing environment"----"growing location";
2. Additional link between "Sociologist" and "Chef": "rituals"----"dishes";
3. All points of views are "personalized" (I mean: professionals), only "food manufacturE" are not. Perhaps it coud become "food manufacturER" (???)

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:
Additional actors:
- Service providers (i.e., providers of agronomic, spraying, harvesting services, etc.),

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:

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

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

Dear Sophie,
this is a nice and rich poster. Please feel free to consider these
suggestions:
1. maybe highlight the "why" as you did for the issues and the
solutions. We can guess more or less some purposes from the picture
(more interdisciplinarity, reproducibility of science, more services for
end users such as breeders, farmers, decision makers, etc.) but it might
not be obvious for everyone.
2. add PIDs in the list of solutions as they play a key role in
desambiguisation

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.
This first one seems simpler to explain (because you did not need to go

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.
