Associated Prof. Tomáš Řezník, PhD. (*1981) focuses on issues related to the domains of agro-IT, SDIs, Web cartography, sensor networks and metadata management. He also worked as a post-doctorate scientific/technical project officer at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission between 2011 and 2012. He has participated in several standardization and framework organizations, e.g. International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), CEN/TC 287 Geographic information or as a metadata expert for the European Umbrella Organisation for Geographic Information (EUROGI). His project-based experience, gained from the EU Horizon 2020, 7th Framework Programme projects, eContentplus projects and national projects, lies in the topics related to the IT architecture of systems for (precision) farming, INSPIRE metadata, INSPIRE data specifications and geospatial Web services development. Assoc. Prof. Tomáš Řezník is an author, or co-author, of more than 50 scientific publications.

Data Model for (Precision) Agriculture: Extending the INSPIRE for Business Applications

The different groups of stakeholders involved in the agricultural activities have to manage many different and heterogeneous sources of information that need to be combined. Such combination enables to make economically and environmentally sound decisions, which include (among others) the definition of policies (subsidies, standardisation and regulation, national strategies for rural development, climate change), development of sustainable agriculture, crop recollection timing and pricing, plagues detection, etc. The INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation in Europe (INSPIRE) desires to connect the isolated spatial data islands of data providers also for the theme of agriculture and aquaculture facilities (AF). Note that the scope of the AF theme has been extended beyond the scope of the term facility in order to allow the inclusion of information about delimited portions of land or water related to Agricultural and Aquaculture activities that are subjected by law to special permission, monitoring or management. The basic need of any Farm Management Information System (FMIS) is to support one level more than it is defined in INSPIRE, i.e. the level commonly designated as a “plot". The “plot" level enables to provide crucial information related to business applications of (precision) agriculture. Description of fertilizers and pesticides (code, name, nutrients, manufacturer, safety instructions etc.), application of fertilizers and pesticides (date and time of application, date of tillage, application area, amount of used fertilizers, description of application, evidence party), information on production (date, variety, amount etc.) and the production analysis allowing to add any property were identified as the key information for the business applications. On the other hand, such information may be re-used for the reporting under another European legislation like Nitrate directive or Common agriculture Policy. The European project called “Farm-Oriented Open Data in Europe" with abbreviation "FOODIE", funded between years 2014 and 2017 addresses the above mentioned issues. This contribution presents in detail the unified data model for (precision) agriculture that uses INSPIRE as a basis.
