New version of OpenAGRIS released: Expanding the AGRIS knowledge
The AGRIS team released OpenAGRIS 0.9, a new version of the Web application that aggregates information from different Web sources − following Linked Open Data principles − to expand the AGRIS knowledge. Its aim is to provide as much data as possible about a topic or a bibliographical resource within the agricultural domain.
OpenAGRIS 0.9 contains new functionalities and received a new interface in English and Spanish, with French, Arabic, Chinese and Russian translations on their way. Newly added resources include: LodLive, a LOD browser; Biodiversity International, a research-for-development organization; and Europeana, a meta-aggregator and display space for European digitised works.
