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.

A Map Portal for Regional Development - MPRR 1.0


The present paper is aimed at introducing map data creation software - a map portal for regional development - MPRR 1.0. MPRR 1.0 is a purpose-made application representing a universal software solution that can be used for a map presentation of virtually any suitable database. The portal is being developed within the framework of the Faculty of Economics and Management Research Program in mutual cooperation between the Department of Information Technologies FEM and the Information and Consulting Centre FEM. Pilot stage implementation was carried out in close cooperation with the Department of Economics and other external partners, especially the Ministry of Agriculture. The SW solution on the World Wide Web platform has been created as a modern robust application enabling further enhancement and development. It is available on a wide range of end-use devices, including the mobile and dedicated ones, using common web browsers. The portal runs within the Apache Web Server and all visualised objects have been saved under the form of UTF-8 character set in MySQL 5 database. To visualize the geographical position of the individual elements, Google Maps API was implemented as it provides constant updating and makes other related Google Inc. functions available. The SW solution itself was developed in JavaScript and map data loading was realized by means of JSON technology using PHP Nette Framework and Dibi database layer. The MPRR 1.0 solution represents qualitatively a brand new perspective of map data creation and it entails many original elements and functionalities (cluster analysis, object aggregation and disaggregation, viewing basic information and optional detailed information, customized preview etc.). MPRR 1.0 was verified by implementation over two kinds of data: a relatively wide and detailed database of organic farms and biogas stations database - in the pilot stage, the region of South Bohemia has been chosen for both cases. The maps have been certified by respective authorities of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic.
