Special Issue "Big Data Application in Agriculture"
A special issue of Agriculture (ISSN 2077-0472).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2016)
The motivation behind this Agriculture Special Issue is to bring “Big Data Solutions for Agriculture” to identify the key challenges that are faced by big data analysts trying to solve problems for agriculture communities, discuss potential solutions, and identify the opportunities emerging from cross-domain interactions among agriculture experts, hydrologists, dairy experts, aquaculture experts, and big data analytics experts. Therefore, we expect to gain from the domain experts an explanation of how they can apply big data analytics, semantic web standards, machine learning techniques, and linked data standards into their scientific research via high impact publications in this Special Issue. We believe that this Special Issue will be a unique opportunity to highlight one of the main themes of next generation digital agriculture, making agricultural decision through the big data computational lens.
More specifically, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- All aspects of big data platform technology
- Architecture for big data innovation
- Big data innovation in agriculture
- Performance evaluation of big data principles;
- Environmental big data integration;
- Smart farm and its application in big data;
- Environmental big data;
- Big data in agricultural disaster management;
- Agricultural multilingual taxonomies and glossaries;
- Cloud based decision support system for plant diseases;
- Environmental big data and knowledge management;
- Problem with big data
