The webinar describes the evolution of the controlled vocabulary from 2017 to 2020 and dives into the status of AGROVOC activities and achievements. Even more, the AGROVOC team discusses the latest developments in the controlled vocabulary covering all areas of interest of FAO.
AGROVOC is the largest Linked Open Data set about agriculture available for public use and facilitates access and visibility of data across domains and languages. It offers a structured collection of agricultural concepts, terms, definitions and relationships which are used to unambiguously identify resources, allowing standardized indexing processes and making searches more efficient.
AGROVOC uses semantic web technologies, linking to other multilingual knowledge organization systems and building bridges between datasets.
Motivation: Human history proves that before the development of vaccines epidemics have mercilessly killed millions of people and livestock. It is the vaccination that saved humanity from the devastating effect of many dangerous infections. In the current pandemic situation the mass vaccination is an important key to stop COVID-19.
