    Ontology-based navigation of bibliographic metadata: example of the Food, Nutrition and Agriculture Journal 2007
    Also available in:

    This paper describes the work done within the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on providing an ontology-based navigation to the Food, Nutrition and Agriculture (FNA) Journal. The aim of the revised navigation was to provide more efficient and effective browsing of the Food and Nutrition Publications using a knowledge model to guide the user with concepts and relationships relevant to a specific subject area. With this approach, data from two different bibliographica l databases were reused, by merging and unifying them and make them better accessible to users. A preliminary metadata merge was needed to combine all the information into one system in order to produce a metadata-ontology. Resource Description Framework Schema (RDFS) has been chosen to exploit semantic relationships e.g. the possibilities of browsing the data in different ways (by keywords, categories, authors, etc.), and the creation of a multilingual concept-based advanced search.

    Ontology creation and document indexing are well-known, critical bottlenecks for integrating semantic services and in general for bootstrapping the Semantic Web. For certain domains or communities, legacy terminologies and indexing methods exist which can be reused effectively. In the Fishery Ontology Project (FOS), we have reengineered and aligned legacy thesauri by using formal ontological methods, and we are deploying the resulting ontology library (currently including more than 3 5,000 classes and about 10,000 individuals) for services dedicated to fishery document repositories and databases. Alignment, reengineering, and modularization of the library leverage on the Core Ontology for Fishery developed in FOS. Its structure and use are described in this paper.

    Sharing agricultural events information: When and where is that workshop? 2008
    Also available in:

    In the last few years a strong need has emerged for a standard way to interchange various types of information, such as on organizations, projects, experts, events and news, in the agricultural community. This paper focuses on the metadata set for events, the Agricultural Events Application Profile (Ag-Events AP), created specifically to enhance description, exchange and reuse of information on events. The Ag-Events AP provides a minimum interoperability layer through which information about upcoming events related to agriculture can be described, shared and reused. The Ag-Events AP was developed by FAO, in collaboration with its partners, the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) and Global Forest Information Service (GFIS), to offer a “minimum” set of metadata elements necessary to share quality descriptions about events. This paper talks about the work done on creating the AP, its use in various applications and the next steps.
