ready Agroportal

General Information
The AgroPortal project aims to offer a reference ontology repository for agronomy, reusing the NCBO BioPortal technology. Many vocabularies and ontologies are produced to represent and annotate agronomic data. Therefore, there is a need of a common platform to identify, host and use them in agro-informatics application. Agroportal features ontology hosting, search, versioning, visualization, comment, recommendation, enables semantic annotation, as well as storing and exploiting ontology alignments. All of these within a fully semantic web compliant infrastructure. The AgroPortal specifically pays attention to respect the requirements of the agronomic community in terms of ontology formats (e.g., SKOS, trait dictionaries) or supported features. AgroPortal project is based on five driving agronomic use cases which participate in the design and orientation of the platform. AgroPortal already offers a robust and stable reference repository highly valuable for the agronomic domain.
