AGROVOC Web Services allow access to AGROVOC contents through SOAP Web Services technology. The current implementation of AGROVOC Web Services is fed by data from the RDF version of AGROVOC (currently, the master version being edited through VocBench).

The WSDL file for the Web Services is located here: http://agrovoc.uniroma2.it:8080/SKOSWS/services/SKOSWS?wsdlA list of the currently implemented AGROVOC Web Services is provided here, together with their description.

The software project for the AGROVOC Web Services is hosted on bitbucket. A discussion group is available for asking specific questions about the AGROVOC Web Services.

AGROVOC can also be accessed through SPARQL. Check the AGROVOC Release page for getting to the SPARQL endpoint.

Note: the AGROVOC Web Services are fed by the Linked Open Data (LOD) version of AGROVOC (see Releases), which include also triples related to:

  • the ontology vocabulary Agrontology,
  • the mappings,
  • trivially inferred triples produced automatically etc.

Web Services List

The following Web Services have been implemented to facilitate access to AGROVOC content through dedicated SOAP clients.

  • getConceptByKeyword

  • getConceptByKeyword2
  • searchByModeLangScopeXML

  • simpleSearchByMode2

  • getConceptInfoByTermcode

  • getConceptInfoByURI

simpleSearchByMode2

Name of Web Service

simpleSearchByMode2 (String searchString, String searchmode, String separator)

Description

This web service executes a simple search on all AGROVOC terms retrieving terms based on the specified search mode: Terms are retrieved having the search term either

  • in the beginning or
  • containing in the AGROVOC term
  • or matching the search term exactly

In case, nothing is specified or the searchmode parameter is entered incorrectly, a partial search, i.e. containing the search term is executed by default. The search is not case sensitive, i.e. ‘Fruit’, ‘FRUIT’ and ‘fruit’ return the same results (for all search modes). No wild cards (like *) can be used.

The difference to the searchByTerm web service is that this web service executes a simpler search, i.e. a search for ‘rice’ with the searchmode ‘containing’ also retrieves the AGROVOC term ‘Wholesale prices’ whereas the searchByTerm web service only retrieves AGROVOC terms that have the entire keyword ‘rice’ as one of the compounds, the term is made up of.

Parameters

String searchString

The search String

String searchmode

The search mode:

- starting

- containing (default)

- exact

-end with

-exact word

String separator

Any separator of your choice to separate the terms in the result string. The default separator is ||.

Return Values

String [(termcode,matchedTerms,languagecode)*,

(NumberOfResults,numberOfResults)]

A string containing all the matched term’s termcodes, the terms themselves, followed by the respective 2 digit language code

The last pair of values of any return string contains the total number of results

Example

A search for ‘fruit’ and ‘starting’ and ‘--’ returns

[3119--Fruit--EN--3119--Fruit--FR--9414--Fruit à pain--FR--11028--Fruit bats--EN--32457--Fruit cracking--EN--3120--Fruit crops--EN--3130--Fruit damaging insects--EN--16184--Fruit drop--EN--29024--Fruit extracts--EN--14827--Fruit flies--EN--25476--Fruit growing--EN--25764--Fruit harvesters--EN--28419--Fruit juice industry--EN--3123--Fruit juices--EN--32459--Fruit leathers--EN--3124--Fruit musts--EN--3125--Fruit products--EN--3126--Fruit pulps--EN--11030--Fruit purees--EN--16552--Fruit set--EN--11031--Fruit sugar--EN--3127--Fruit syrups--EN--35116--Fruit thinning--EN--34832--Fruit tree nurseries--EN--3128--Fruit trees--EN--3129--Fruit vegetables--EN--15971--Fruiting--EN--11032--Fruiting bodies (fungi)--EN--3131--Fruits--EN--3131--Fruits--FR--9238--Fruits à baie--FR--12873--Fruits à coque--FR--25461--Fruits à noyau--FR--25497--Fruits à pépins--FR--1248--Fruits confits--FR--25152--Fruits congelés--FR--32501--Fruits de contre-saison--FR--2005--Fruits de cucurbitacée--FR--35689--Fruits de mer--FR--29288--Fruits en conserve--FR--3099--Fruits frais--FR--2382--Fruits séchés--FR--14656--Fruits subtropicaux--FR--16491--Fruits surgelés--FR--7655--Fruits tempérés--FR--7974--Fruits tropicaux--FR--NumberOfResults--46]

getConceptInfoByTermcode

Name of Web Service

getConceptInfoByTermcode (String termCode)

Description

Returns the most important concept information of an AGROVOC term, i.e. its term code, labels in all languages and the term codes of its broader, narrower and related terms as well as of non-descriptor terms for which this concept is used. In case of a non-descriptor, it contains the link to its descriptor via the USE relationship. So compared to its previous version of this method (getConceptByTerm) it is now possible to navigate from and to non-descriptors. Also, now the termcode is used instead of the term, to avoid ambiguity (in case of two identical terms in different languages).

Parameters

String termcode

The termcode of the AGROVOC term for example 6599 for ‘rice’

Return Values

String [] concept

The Array of String containing the various parts of the concept. Each element of the array is inside []:
[0] – term code of the search Term

[1] – labels of the term

[2] – term codes of the terms (non-descriptors) this concept is used for (UF)

[3] – term code(s) of the term’s descriptor(s) (USE) in case of a non-descriptor

[4] – term codes of the concept’s broader terms (BT)

[5] – term codes of the concept’s narrower terms (NT)

[6] – term codes of the concept’s related terms (RT)

Example

Submitting ‘6599’ returns the following :
[[6599], [أرز, AR, rýže, CS, REIS, DE, Rice, EN, Arroz, ES, Riz, FR, 米, JA, Arroz, PT, ryža, SK, ข้าว, TH, 稻米, ZH], [UF, 13028], [USE], [BT, 1474], [NT], [RT, 5435, 16032, 25500]],

i.e. the termcode of rice (6599), followed by its labels in all available languages, followed by the termcodes of the concept’s non-descriptor (terms this concept is used for, in this case ‘Paddy’), the termcodes of the concept’s broader terms (here ‘Cereals’), its narrower terms and related terms (here: ‘Oryza’, ‘Rice straw’, ‘Rice flour’).

Since it is a descriptor, there is no term linked to the USE relationship.

getConceptInfoByURI

Name of Web Service

getConceptInfoByURI(String ontologyName, String conceptURI, String format)

Description

The Method will return the concept information for the given URI. The result of this method will be in SKOS or TXT format.

Parameters

String ontologyName

String conceptURI

String format

Return Values

 String result

It returns the results in SKOS or TXT format

Example

ontologyName:Agrovoc

conceptURI:http://aims.fao.org/aos/agrovoc/c_99

format:SKOS

Output(sample):

<skos:Concept rdf:about="http://aims.fao.org/aos/agrovoc/c_100">

                                      <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="ar">أكري (برازيل)</skos:prefLabel>

                                      <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="cs">Acre (Brazílie)</skos:prefLabel>

[2] – the term’s definitions

[3] – the term’s other comments

Example

The termcode 2345 (‘Division of labour’) in language English (en) returns the following:

[[Scope Note:, Physical division of labour; for the international division of labour use <3915> and <6205>], [History Note:], [Definition:], [Comment:]]

SPARQL queries using OWLIM (Lucene) indexes.

In OWLIM, is it posibile to search in the Literals using LUCENE's indexes.

First of all, you should create these indexes. To do so, you need to execute the two following  update queries:

PREFIX luc: <http://www.ontotext.com/owlim/lucene#>
INSERT DATA {
luc:moleculeSize luc:setParam "1" .
luc:languages luc:setParam "" .
luc:include luc:setParam "centre" .
luc:index luc:setParam "literals" .
}

PREFIX luc: <http://www.ontotext.com/owlim/lucene#>
INSERT DATA {
<http://www.ontotext.com/owlim/lucene#agrovoc> luc:createIndex "true" .
}

Where <http://www.ontotext.com/owlim/lucene#agrovoc> is the name of the indexes, you can use a different URI to idendify the indexes, but you should rememeber to use it in the other SPARQL queries as well.

Then to retrieve the literals using the new indexes you can do:

SELECT ?label

WHERE{

?label <http://www.ontotext.com/owlim/lucene#agrovoc> "dog*" .

FILTER( langMatches(lang(?label), "en")) .

}

To retrieve all the literals which start with the word dog and are in English.

You can find more information on how to use these indexes to execute a full text search from the official page of OWLIM: http://owlim.ontotext.com/display/OWLIMv53/OWLIM-SE+Full-text+Search

Some of the Web Services are using these indexes if the config parameter "owlim.useIndexes" is set to true (the first time you need to set to true also the config paramter "owlim.reloadIndexes" to create these indexes)
