The Land Portal Foundation (Land Portal)

The Land Portal Foundation was established to create, curate and disseminate land governance information by fostering an inclusive and accessible data ecosystem. Over the last decade, the portal has evolved from a simple information gateway to become a knowledge broker, a resource base, a vibrant online community of users and a trusted voice within global land governance. The Land Portal works to improve discoverability of land-related data and information by making use of Linked Open Data and Semantic technologies. The AGROVOC concept scheme relating to Land Governance is called LandVoc and is stewarded by the Land Portal Foundation. Since 2012 the Land Portal Foundation has been working to create Land Voc, enrich it with multiple concepts and terms related to land governance and make it available in a several languages. In 2020 the Land Portal established a community of experts to support the ongoing development of the LandVoc concept scheme, and to support ongoing contributions from the land governance community to AGROVOC.
