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.

Study of Reference Model for Agro-geoinformation Standards


Standardization in the field of agro-geoinformation is imperative to support and simplify the sharing, usage and interoperability of agro-geoinformation of different sources. It is also a complex task that addresses multiple aspects encompassing data collection, data analysis, data management, system development, data sharing and information service. As such, a reference model is required to achieve this task in an integrated and consistent manner. The reference model for agro-geoinformation standards defined aim, emphasis, groups of standards and their relation. Using methods of system engineering and conceptual schema, this paper developed and brought forward a reference model for agro-geoinformation standards. The reference model consists of three levels - the base standard level, the general standard level, the profile and application standard level. The general standard consists of five groups including guidance standards, data or product standards, management standards, application system development standards and information service standards. The paper mainly set forth the standard composition and essentials of five groups. It put forward important principles and methods for building specific agricultural information standard profiles and application standards based on the base standard and the general standard. The reference model has guidance meaning for the field information standardization which focuses on information accumulation, application and service as well as establishment of agro-geoinformation standard system.
