Setting up a Global Linked Data Catalog of Datasets for Agriculture

The movement to share data has been on the rise in the last decade and lately in the agricultural domain. Similarly platforms for publishing scientific and sta-tistical datasets have sprouted and have improved visibility and availability of datasets.
