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.

Demands for geospatial information and geodata accessibility to support vineyard management using new technology for precision farming are increasing worldwide. In this paper a WebGIS application is presented, it has been developed to support the on-going researches of Consorzio Tuscania Project on precision viticulture in Tuscany, aiming at the assessment of the impact of different vineyard canopy management techniques on grape quality. Within this framework, a parallel goal was also to build a Web service to support operational applications for agronomic treatments and grape harvest and to provide digital images for mobile devices that can be also integrated on agricultural machineries. A geoportal has been developed to organize geospatial data and services through (i) a viewer, (ii) a catalogue containing metadata records and (iii) a geodatabase where all data and results of Research Project are stored. Thanks to web services, users can view, analyse and download vegetation indices derived from airborne remote sensing highresolution products, agrometeorological data of a Wireless Sensor Network located in the vineyards and others reference data to support vineyard precision farming practices. The web architecture as well as the user interface were implemented using open source tools in order to guarantee the web application sustainability and the implementation of customized geospatial functions required by the project stakeholders. MapServer was used with PHP/ Ajax technologies to develop all components of Web mapping application and PostgreSQL was used as data warehouse for geodata and alphanumeric data management. On-the-fly processing and map visualization show the high potentialities in a reliable, accessible and personalized use of Internet to monitor the vineyards characteristics during the growing season and to improve grape harvest management.
