Global Agricultural Concept Scheme

English Abstract: 

"GACS explored the possibility of creating a global repository of concepts and terminology in the area of agriculture. This first beta is the result of the first experimental attempt, and it went very well! We now have a pool of concepts based on a mapping between AGROVOC, the CAB Thesaurus and the NAL Thesaurus. An analysis of the the coverage of GACS beta with respect to AGROVOC showed that it could already be used to index AGRIS, with no significant loss of indexing concepts."
