ready AGRIS Application Profile

Abbreviation: AGRIS AP

General Information
The AGRIS Application Profile (AGRIS AP) is a metadata standard created specifically to enhance the description, exchange and subsequent retrieval of agricultural Document-Like Information Objects (DLIOs). It is a metadata schema which draws elements from well known Metadata standards such as Dublin Core (DC), Australian Government Locator Service Metadata (AGLS) and Agricultural Metadata Element Set (AgMES) namespaces. It allows sharing of information across dispersed bibliographic systems and provides guidelines on recommended best practices for cataloguing and subject indexing. The AGRIS AP is a major step towards exchanging high-quality and medium-complex metadata in an application independent format. The goal of the AGRIS Application Profile (AGRIS AP) is to facilitate interoperability of metadata formats currently in use to enable linking of various types of agricultural information, therefore allowing users to perform cross-searches and other value added services.
