AGROVOC Thesaurus and Concept Server

Description: 
AGROVOC is a multilingual (including 11 languages with others under construction), structured and controlled vocabulary used for AGRIS indexing and designed to cover the terminology of all subject fields in agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food and related domains such as the environment. Currently, an AGROVOC Concept Server is being developed for building the Thesaurus into an “ontology service”. “Ontology is a new concept that is emerging from the various Semantic Web initiatives, which roughly speaking can be defined as a semantic system that contains terms, the definitions of those terms, and the specification of relationships among those terms. Current activities to create a Concept Server using AGROVOC as the starting point are underway. (see also http://www.fao.org/aims/onto_domains.jsp)
