AgriVIVO is a search portal built to facilitate connections between all actors in the agricultural field, bridging across separately hosted directories and online communities.
AgriVIVO highlights the relationships between people, organizations, projects, events, topics and geographic locations because connections between potential collaborators can take many forms, from geographic location to topics of interest to affiliation with similar institutions.
AgriVIVO is based on the VIVO open source semantic web application initially developed at Cornell University and now adopted by several cross-institutional research discovery projects. More about VIVO...
AgriVIVO was initiated and is led by the Global Forum on Agricultural Research, in collaboration with Cornell University and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
The pioneer communities that have provided the initial data for the AgriVIVO pilot are:
- Data about people: e-agriculture, YPARD, AIMS, IAALD, EGFAR;
- Data about organizations: EGFAR, CIARD, CIARD RING (and indirectly the communities that provide data about people including affiliation);
- Data about events: AgriFeeds, IAALD.
An updated list of all data providers is available here.
Data are not synchronized in real time with the data sources, so information that has been updated in the source may not be up to date in AgriVIVO until the source is harvested again.
Data are imported from sources at regular intervals. These intervals may be different from source to source.
