Edits to 'https://fairsharing.org/FAIRsharing.95n1ns' by 'The FAIRsharing Team' at 11:14, 25 Jan 2018 (approved): 'description' has been modified: Before: The Thesaurus is an online vocabulary of agricultural terms in English and Spanish and is cooperatively produced by the National Agricultural Library, USDA and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture as well as other Latin American agricultural institutions belonging to the Agriculture Information and Documentation Service of the Americas (SIDALC). After: The Thesaurus is an online vocabulary of agricultural terms in English and Spanish. The Agricultural Thesaurus and Glossary were first released by the National Agricultural Library in 2002. In 2007, NAL and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) collaborated to develop the Spanish version of the NAL Agricultural Thesaurus and Glossary, named Tesauro Agricola y Glosario. The thesaurus is primarily used for indexing and for improving retrieval of agricultural information. The subject categories are used to browse the Thesaurus in a specific discipline or subject area. The subject scope of agriculture is broadly defined in the thesaurus, and includes terminology in the supporting biological, physical and social sciences. Biological nomenclature comprises a majority of the terms in the thesaurus and is located in the Taxonomic Classification of Organisms Subject Category. Political geography is mainly described at the country level.

The Ag Data Commons is a data access system maintained by the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Agricultural Library. It uses a customized version of open-source DKAN software, which is compliant with U.S. Project Open Data standards for federal agencies providing access to publicly-funded data. Ag Data Commons holds data files managed directly by NAL and also links to datasets and resources located on other websites. The Ag Data Commons provides access to a wide variety of open data relevant to agricultural research and related domains. These may include subjects such as agronomy, genomics, hydrology, soils, agro-ecosystems, sustainability science, and economic statistics. Data included in the Ag Data Commons is funded in whole or in part by USDA. Our goal is that Ag Data Commons will foster innovative data re-use, integration, and visualization to support bigger, better science and policy.
