I will follow the lead from Hugo and introduce myself! I am currently working as Information Management Officer at FAO. I am member of the group working on metadata standards and have been strongly involved in the development of the Agricultural Metadata Element Set (AgMES) , which is also the basis for the AGRIS Application Profile. During the Expert Consultation in Rome (October 2005) we launched the Agricultural Information Management Standards Website with the aim of providing a one-stop access to standards, tools and methodologies for efficient design of agricultural information systems.
I look forward to meeting all of you in Wageningen and in following up on the various streams of discussion we had in Rome and currently taking place on the blog.
- Use Cases for Organization Metadata
- Application Profile for FAO’s Learning Resources
- Benefits of using AGRIS Application Profile over Simple Dublin Core
I am looking forward to meeting you all soon.
