Creating and Operating WorldAgInfo System (WAgIS)
World Ag Info Project Design Team
Solution Scenario Concept: Create and operate an Internet based multimedia agricultural database designed to support user-created content and feedback. The system, called “WorldAgInfo System” or “WAgIS,” will incorporate features found in Wikipedia, FaceBook, YouTube, and eBay. WAgIS will be extended beyond all of these systems in that it will accommodate interfaces for illiterate users and incorporate content delivery options oriented to the conditions found in South Asia and Africa.
WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 4: Technologies and Information Exchange Systems. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
