faoCreated on Aug 18th, 2020

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.

Our goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. With over 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger. Homepage: http://www.fao.org

It is widely used in specialized libraries as well as digital libraries and repositories to index content and for the purpose of text mining. It is also used as a specialized tagging resource for content organization by FAO and third-party stakeholders.

This is the VoID metadata description of AGROVOC.

This dataset is AGROVOC LOD. It includes:

  • AGROVOC Core
  • pointer to void:inDataset triple, linking to the AGROVOC VoID descriptor, for each skos:Concept, skosxl:Label and skos:ConceptScheme
  • materialization of SKOS core labels from the skosxl reified Labels (skosxl Labels are maintained too)
  • materializaton of trivially inferred triples (due to symmetric and inverseOf properties, no transitive closure computed)
  • Agrontology vocabulary (stored in the <http://aims.fao.org/aos/agrontology> named graph)

This dataset is the AGROVOC Core. It includes:

  • data dump from VocBench
  • timestamp on the AGROVOC SKOS Concept Scheme, indicating the date/time of release
  • agrovoc mapping to other triple stores (now stored in the default graph, previously (until 2014) stored in the http://aims.fao.org/aos/agrovoc-mappings named graph; see Agrovoc VoID descriptor to get the list of all mapped files. AGROVOC version before 2015, there is a link to the updated mapping file for that version).
