Group details

Secretariat Liaison: 
Stefanie Kethers
TAB Liaison: 
Christine Kirkpatrick
WGs Wrapping up (from ~12 months after RDA endorsement)
 

The group started in Jan 2017 and will close on June 2018. 

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 (NEW: read the analysis report!),
  3. A document on recommendations for the future of semantics for agricultural data - software, functionalities, semantic assets to enhance data interoperability in agriculture. 

Ongoing activities

  • We are working on producing recommendations from the requirements and group discussions.
  • bi-weekly calls. Register to the group to keep abreast of developments. 

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 :)

Dear all,
Our best wishes for this end of year holidays, and for a peaceful and prosperous 2019!
And a quick update on the group activities:
We are going to submit a proposal for an Agrisemantics session @RDA P13. The goal is to discuss the group's output, and ideas for future activities, either within RDA or outside it - or both. We hope to see many of you at the Plenary!
The "recommendations", final output of the group, are moving on. Here's the current version: http://bit.ly/Del3_Recommendations

RE: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][rda-wdinterop-wg][rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg][on-farm-data-sharing-wg][metrics-indicators-agriculture][agriculturecapacitydev] News about the IGAD chairs

Dear Imma, all,
It's been a great and rewarding experience being part of the Interest Group on Agricultural Data and following the various working groups.
Unfortunately, like Imma said, due to incompatibilities with the characteristics of my work as an academic researcher, I have to interrupt it, for the respect that I give to the role of being a co-chair and the expectancies that it implies.
I want to thank personally Imma, Patricia and Esther for being such a wonderful team to work with. And, obviously, the warm community that has gathered around this group.

News about the IGAD chairs

Dear IGAD Community Members,
It is time to express our gratitude to the IGAD co-chairs Esther Dzale and Armando Stellato, for their valuable contributions to this community during the last two years. Due to their tight agendas and portfolios, Esther and Armando's involvement as co-chairs of IGAD are unfortunately coming to an end, but they will continue very much involved in the RDA activities around agriculture and semantics.

Dear colleagues,
RDA/IGAD chairs will soon start to organize the IGAD Meeting in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, USA) prior to the RDA 13th Plenary (2-4 April 2019). As a first step, we would be interested to know how many people from the Interest Group would be attending the RDA Plenary.

Thank you in advance!
