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,
  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

  • Collection of use cases: tell us your story, limitations, and expectations.

We are collecting input on use cases on the use of semantic resources for agricultural data - be those controlled vocabularies, metadata schemas or ontologies. We are interested in knowing what problems and limitations people face when dealing with them. To this end, we have set up a short survey, 6 questions, that you can find as an online document: https://goo.gl/u9yrzs

To provide your use case: 1. go to the dedicated shared folder: https://goo.gl/XuBwFa 2. and make your own copy of the survey, respecting the naming convention (this will help us process and analyze the results!).

 In case of doubts, do not hesitate to ask one of the chairs!

 Please be informed that all shared folders are public. We also plan on publishing the collected use cases as support material for the requirement document.

Many thanks!

  • 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 :)

Evaluating the AgroLD platform

Hello everyone,
we would need 5 minutes of your time to test and evaluate the AgroLD platform.
AgroLD is a knowledge platform using semantic web technologies for integrating and linking data (functional and other) from several databases for Oryza and Arabidopsis species (mainly).
You have attached the user guide.
The platform is available at www.agrold.org  and the questionnaire www.agrold.org/survey.jsp
