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.

An Agent-based Component for Web Geographic Information Systems


GIS is wildly used in archaeology, geography, cartography, remote sensing, land surveying, public utility management, natural resource management, precision agriculture, photogrammetry, urban planning, emergency management, landscape architecture, navigation, aerial video and localized search engines. We propose an intelligent agent-based component for Web GIS. The component comprises serveral coordinated agents for users to retrieve geographic information. Function logic of server part, processing logic of client part and underlying operation of system, including interaction with operating system, network, and database, are separately designed so as achieve maximal stability. Independence between modules ensures extensibility. Advanced functions such as map management, user management and data management are also integrated. By the Web GIS component, users can conduct roaming and zooming in several map layers, spatial information analysis and retrieval. The component provides API for application developers, data distributors and spatial database engine vendors so that they can add dynamic, data-driven map to applications. The component can be integrated into development environment easily, reducing application system complexity, easing development progress, sparing as much cost as possible and promoting maintainability as well.
