agro.Connectrlp Creates a Network for the Agricultural Domain
The solution presented enables a farmer to create contract documents and transmit them to service providers and contract partners using the Internet. agro.Connectrlp will be presented in the Public Sector Parc in hall 9, booth C39/02 at the joint booth of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
Using agro.Connect rlp, it will be possible to include geographical data (aerial photographs, location and boundaries of cultivated areas) into agricultural documentation, administration, and business workflows, and exchange them. The crucial issue is the flexible usage of data that has been recorded once, and the avoidance of unnecessary multiple entries. To achieve this goal, the new technology dynamically combines geodata from the state government with user data from farm administration programs.
The architecture is based on the principle of data sovereignty: Farm data worth protecting remain under the farmer's control – a crucial prerequisite for the acceptance of this technology throughout the domain. agro.Connectrlp is being built on the basis of open standards (including XForms, ebXML, UBL, OGC, agroXML) and a service-oriented architecture (SOA); a prototype is being developed and a pilot project is taking place. First practical experiences have already been made; several software developing companies have already expressed their interest in agro.Connect rlp.
The project agro.Connect rlp is being carried out by Fraunhofer IESE and the Competence Center for Innovative Information Systems of the University of Applied Sciences Bingen together with the Service Center Rural Region Rheinhessen-Nahe-Hunsrück. It is funded by the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Transportation, Agriculture and Viniculture of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Other states will also be able to benefit from the developments initiated by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
