Semantics for the Interoperability of Agricultural Data
Modern agriculture needs data on a wide range of topics, from crop yields to soil composition and rainfall, in a wide range of digital formats, from spreadsheets to maps. How well such diverse data sources can be integrated to solve specific problems in agriculture depends in part on whether they are based on compatible concepts ("semantic interoperability"). The practicalities of semantic interoperability in agricultural data have been addressed in:
- RDA Agrisemantics Working Group of the Research Data Alliance.
- Global Agricultural Concept Scheme (GACS).
- GODAN Action VEST / AgroPortal map of standards
