This portal provides a global map of existing vocabularies for the exchange of data in the field of food and agriculture.

The directory is the continuation of the FAO VEST Registry under the GODAN Action umbrella.
It's the result of the merging of records from two different sources: the
VEST Registry
(a registry of vocabularies of all types and all formats) and the AgroPortal (a repository of RDF ontologies).
