e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Optical Monitoring with Field Server toward the BIX Standardization


BIX is an XML standard for the data exchange between sensed data of the information arising on the spot and database. The nutrimental components in plants are important information for the diagnosis and the cultivation control of the agricultural products. Application of mid-infrared (MIR) spectroscopic and the X-ray fluorescent (XRF) spectroscopy to the simple, non-destructive, simultaneous, and rapid monitoring of die nutrient information of fresh plants is desirable as the high potential implements. The both spectroscopic methods provide substantial potential as the quantitative tools in the fields for the chemical components relating to the plant vigor. Since it is necessary to take an accurate grasp of the quality change in time and to make a suitable cultivation management for the change, we also carried on research of "the development of BIX Image Broker System (BIX-IBS)" and "the remote monitoring of color of agricultural products for evaluating the quality". BIX has to determine a standard not only for data acquisition and exchange but also for data storage, concentration and handling.
