AGROVOC is a relevant 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.
AGROVOC case studies
In 2021, FAO issued a call for use cases about the adoption and use of its AGROVOC multilingual thesaurus, as part of the activities that took place that year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the thesaurus. Two AGROVOC country reports were published in 2021 about Georgia and the Republic of Moldova. The link to the case studies page is available here.
