This group brings together research organisations and individuals to answer the question “How do we present and discuss livestock data in a consistent manner?”.
The group is interested in the use of standard vocabularies or ontologies to help classify and organise livestock data to ensure it is findable and reusable. This is a collective effort aimed at identifying common goals and mapping out strategic joint activities. The group is open to anyone with an interest in exploring and building livestock vocabularies and ontologies.
- Address the challenge of inconsistent terms
- Make use of existing vocabularies and ontologies
- Find ways to map and link ontologies, and highlight gaps
- Connect and collaborate on common interests
The Working Group is coordinated in collaboration with the CGIAR Big Data in Agriculture Ontologies CoP.
