FOODIE – Farm-Oriented Open Data in Europe (2014 – 2017)
The key point of FOODIE project is creating a platform hub on the cloud where spatial and non-spatial data related to agricultural sector are available for agri-food stakeholders groups and interoperable. It will offer an infrastructure for the building of an interacting and collaborative network; the integration of existing open datasets related to agriculture; data publication and data linking of external agriculture data sources, providing specific and high-value applications and services for the support of planning and decision-making processes.

FOODIE service platform will make use of existing spatial information resources and services. It will also provide an open API that will allow the stakeholders to access to different data sources and agricultural advisory services in order to foster better decision-making processes. And it will enable businesses and SMEs specialized in the agricultural domain to build innovative solutions and services for their customers.

FOODIE will enable and incentivize the creation of high-value applications and services for the support in the planning and decision-making processes of different stakeholders groups, through its open, standards-based and interoperable agricultural specialized platform hub on the cloud. In addition, FOODIE will provide reward mechanisms for data sharing in order to incentivize external data providers to bring their data sets to the platform.

FOODIE project will enable farmers to provide their own data by the provision of easy to use crowdsourcing tools and applications that encapsulate the complexity of the underlying services technology. For instance, this could be a mobile or web application that offers a form with fields for collecting specific information from his farm or a wizard application that allows him to configure with a few “clicks” the sensor system within its farm to send periodically the observations to FOODIE platform.
