Rapid development of multidimensionally multiscale timely updated socioecological geodata presents an opportunity as potential information resource for supporting effective decisionmaking of stakeholders involved with food systems from daily routines of individuals to strategic decisions of manager and policymakers However the use of this type of big data toward supporting the sustainability of food systems at different scales still fall short of i what information commonly needed by food system actors to response and adapt to socioecological change and enhance the system performance ii interoperability between different types of data across scales and iii sufficient guidance to utilize big data resources for diverse users contexts and needs In this reviewbased and conceptual analysis we propose a framework with functional blocks for designing integrated agroinformatics systems that organize uses of big socioecological data for research and development with an orientation to food system sustainability These functional blocks are 1 information need assessment 2 use cases library development 3 interoperability improvement 4 patterntrend discovery and 5 feedback management including colearning A typical usecase is a sequence of limited steps that describes the interactions between a typical user and the information system to accomplish a typical goal Use cases library consists of as many as possible typical use cases to cope with diverse use needs Interoperability improvement focuses on critical interfaces such as between quantitative and qualitative data and placebased and flowbased data eg agroecology vs value chains We illuminate the concept and discuss its potential benefits with a pilot project on webbased GIS for SLM optionsbycontext SLM Sustainable Land Management initiated by CGIAR Research Program on Dryland Systems
