TITLE
GACS Core QIP-development
Global Agricultural Concept Scheme Core
DESCRIPTION
The Global Agricultural Concept Scheme (GACS) is a hub for
concepts related to agriculture, in multiple languages, for use in Linked
Data. The idea for GACS emerged out of discussions at the World Congress of
IAALD, the International Association of Agricultural Information Specialists,
in July 2013. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations
(FAO), CAB International (CABI), and the National Agricultural Library of the
USA (NAL) agreed in October 2013 to explore the feasibility of developing a
shared concept scheme by integrating their three thesauri: the AGROVOC
Concept Scheme, the CAB Thesaurus (CABT), and NAL Thesaurus (NALT). In the
GACS vision, the integration of these three thesauri is but the first step
towards the realization of a hub that links to and from the concept schemes
beyond the initial three, and in multiple language areas.
