Abstract  In this paper, the Chinese Agricultural Thesaurus (CAT) is expressed formally and described in a semantically linked way based on SKOS and SKOS-XL. CAT is also mapped and linked to other well-known knowledge organization system such as AGROVOC, NALT, EUROVOC and LCSH at individual level. In addition, a linked data publishing system of CAT is developed based on the open source tool Virtuoso, providing services such as HTTP URI dereference, CAT concepts browsing and navigation, SPARQL query endpoint and RDF Dumps. This study can advance the CAT's visibility, accessibility and interoperability with other systems, and lay fundamental base to describe, organize and semantically link other agricultural information resources as well.
