Semantic Technologies in Agricultural Communication - The iGreen Project
The iGreen project attempts to realise a public-private knowledge sharing infrastructure, aiming at giving agriculturists and contractors access to richer, more accurate and more up-to-date decision support. To enable communication between a diverse and changing set of stakeholders, common data formats and shared vocabulary are crucial prerequisites. The iGreen project uses linked open data and semantic technologies to realise a dynamic, extensible and community-supportable basis for communication and interchange. This paper presents the technical principles as well as the exemplary services and ontologies available in this project.
