ABSTRACT
AGRIS is the International System for Agricultural Science and Technology. It is supported by a large community of data providers, partners and users. AGRIS is a database that aggregates bibliographic data, and through this core data, related content across online information systems is retrieved by taking advantage of Semantic Web capabilities. AGRIS is a global public good and its vision is to be a responsive service to its user needs by facilitating contributions and feedback regarding the AGRIS core knowledgebase, AGRIS's future and its continuous development. Periodic AGRIS e-consultations, partner meetings and user feedback are assimilated to the development of the AGRIS application and content coverage. This paper outlines the current AGRIS technical set-up, its network of partners, data providers and users as well as how AGRIS's responsiveness to clients' needs inspires the continuous technical development of the application. The paper concludes by providing a use case of how the AGRIS stakeholder input and the subsequent AGRIS e-consultation results influence the development of the AGRIS application, knowledgebase and service delivery.

f1: AGRIS mashup screenshot showing AGRIS bibliographic records pulling and visualising linked resources from external data sources.

Mentions: Figure 1 shows a mashup page which displays an AGRIS record selected by the user with some AGROVOC descriptors and URIs (left). Once AGRIS loads the mashup page, it reads the list of AGROVOC URIs available within the AGRIS record, and run asynchronous queries to external Web services and SPARQL endpoints to get information related to the content of the selected AGRIS record. In the screenshot below for the AGROVOC concept “Oryza sativa”, AGRIS displays a distribution map from GBIF (http://www.gbif.org; the Global Biodiversity Information Facility), as well as some germplasm collecting missions from Bioversity International (http://www.bioversityinternational.org/). AGRIS pulls and visualizes data from World Bank, CGRIS germplasm database, and International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). A full listing of external data sources AGRIS pulls from is available on AGRIS website (http://agris.fao.org/content/how-it-works).
