FAO in collaboration with the AGROVOC community and its technical partner MIMOS Berhad has for the first time published its agricultural thesaurus AGROVOC as linked open data (LOD), releasing more than 30,000 connected concepts that return standards-based term metadata.
AGROVOC covers agriculture, forestry, fisheries, nutrition and related areas. Its scope and historic traction gives its URIs the possibility to link all available datasets in its domain area. The power of AGROVOC as LOD is not only its expression in 20 languages. AGROVOC LOD is also quickly bridging to other related vocabularies. VocBench is the multi-lingual, vocabulary editing and management tool developed by FAO in collaboration with Kasetsart University in Bangkok and ICRISAT in Hyderabad. It is hosted by MIMOS Berhad. VocBench is designed to handle thesauri, authority lists, classification schemes and glossaries.
With the release of the VocBench and the publication of AGROVOC LOD, FAO and its partners have set an important milestone to create an interoperability infrastructure for agricultural information. Know more about the benefits of AGROVOC LOD and VocBench with the AGROVOC Team here.
