Agdatahub deploys its solutions to players in the agricultural sector sector, for organisations of all sizes and in all sectors. in all sectors.
The Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (BRGM) is the leading public institution dedicated to geological knowledge. It deploys its expertise in many fields: geology, mineral resources, risks and land use planning, transition, etc.
« Nous produisons des données sur les eaux souterraines, les nappes d’eau et nous faisons des recherches autour de la qualité et la quantité d’eau, mais aussi la gestion de cette ressource en lien avec le changement climatique », énumère Victor Liger, Responsable Innovation au BRGM.
BRGM is responsible for collecting and making available a large amount of data and, as a national public institution, it has considered making them available via a data exchange platform. It chose the API-Agro platform because of its position as the reference platform for the agricultural sector.
THE USE CASE
"We are usually more in touch with local authorities and industry," notes Victor Liger. However, with the current issues surrounding water resources that farmers are facing, it is clear that BRGM has a role to play in providing valuable data to the agricultural sector.
Its presence on API-Agro since December 2021 therefore meets three objectives:
For the moment, only one Open Data offer and only one theme is visible in the API-Agro catalogue. But the BRGM is working on formalising others, mainly on water.
"The API-Agro platform meets our dissemination challenge but also acts as a lever to produce specific datasets that are not completely open data.".
