Using Linked Open Data to Improve Discoverability of Land-Related Information
The Land Portal Foundation has taken the lead in the land governance sector to develop a standardized vocabulary: LandVoc, the Linked Land Governance Thesaurus. LandVoc is mainly derived from the food and agriculture organization’s Agrovoc, the standard agriculture vocabulary, but links together many other vocabularies designed and/or used by land governance stakeholders on both a global and local level.
