FOODIE - Farm-Oriented Open Data in Europe

FOODIE project aims at creating a platform hub on the cloud where spatial and non-spatial data related to agricultural sector is 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 project is addressed to four basic groups of users: a) stakeholders from the agriculture sector as endusers of final applications, b) public sector for communication with farmers about taxation, subsidies and regulation, c) researchers for large scale experimentation on real data and d) ICT companies for the
development of new applications for agriculture and food sector, mainly using implemented tools
FOODIE specifically works on three pilots:

  • Pilot 1: Precision Viticulture (Spain) will focus on the appropriate management of the inherent
    variability of crops,
  • Pilot 2: Open Data for Strategic and Tactical Planning (Czech Republic) will focus on improving future management of agricultural companies (farms) by introducing new tools and management methods,
  • Pilot 3: Technology allows integration of logistics via service providers and farm management including traceability (Germany).
