Opening up and linking data is becoming a priority for many data producers
because of institutional requirements, or to consume data in newer
applications, or simply to keep pace with current development. Since 2014,
this priority has gaining momentum with the Global Open Data in Agriculture
and Nutrition initiative (GODAN). Typical small and medium-size
institutions have to deal with constrained resources, which often hamper
their possibilities for making their data publicly available. Keizer and
Caracciolo will provide an overview of bottlenecks that institutions
typically face when entering the world of open and linked data, and will
provide recommendations on how to proceed. They will also discuss the use
of standard and linked vocabularies to produce linked data, especially in
the area of agriculture. They will describe AGRISAs, a web-based resource
linking agricultural datasets as an example of linked data application
resulting from the collaboration of small institutions. They will also
mention AgriDrupal, a Drupal distribution that supports the production and
consumption of linked datasets. This webinar will be of interest to any
institution seeking ways to publish and curate data in the Linked Data

*Redux:* This is an update of a webinar first presented in 2013.


Johannes Keizer has worked for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the
UN since 1998, primarily as head of the FAO documentation group. The
bibliographic database AGRIS and the multilingual concept scheme AGROVOC
were completely remodeled under his leadership. In the Office of Knowledge
Exchange, Research and Extensions, he heads a staff of 20—the AIMS
(Agricultural Information Management Standards and Services) team—which
provides standards, tools, and advice for FAO stakeholders. The AIMS Team
provides the technical backbone for the global Coherence in Information for
Agricultural Research for Development (CIARD) Initiative. Through EC
framework projects such as NeON, D2Science, and agINFRA, the AIMS Team has
channeled the results of innovative European research into the
international work of FAO to combat hunger and poverty in the world.

Caterina Caracciolo, PhD, has served as an Information Specialist at the
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) since 2006.
Currently, she is responsible for the AGROVOC Concept Scheme, and
participates in the GACS Working Group and the Wheat Data Interoperability
Working Group (RDA). Her main interest lay in the area of semantics for
data integration and sharing, with a special focus on data specific to the
domains of agriculture, biodiversity, natural science and environment in
the broad sense. She regularly serves on program committees for
international conferences and publishes in conference proceedings and
journals in the area of semantic web and information sharing in agriculture
and biodiversity. She has worked in various EC-funded projects and served
as also served as Work Package leader in the NeOn and SemaGrow projects.
