Ag Data Commons provides access to a wide variety of open data relevant to agricultural research. We are a centralized repository for data already on the web, as well as for new data being published for the first time. While compliance with the U.S. Federal public access and open data directives is important, we aim to surpass them. Our goal is to foster innovative data re-use, integration, and visualization to support bigger, better science and policy.
Ag Data Commons is covered by Thomson Reuters Data Citation Index, data.gov, AGRIS, and others.
The Ag Data Commons is a metadata repository that uses the Project Open Data v1.1 metadata schema and its metadata resources.
