AgMES (Agricultural Metadata Element Set)

A semantic standard developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, AgMES enables description, resource discovery, interoperability and data exchange of different types of information resources in all areas relevant to food production, nutrition and rural development.

The standard is maintained by AIMS (Agricultural Information Management Standards), and while it has been used in various application profiles, it is now deprecated for new uses and will no longer be updated.
