Ontology resources are more and more important for organizing knowledge. It has become an important task to improve the efficiency of ontology construction for ontology applications. How to generate ontology automatically from database resources is an emerging task in ontology construction. Aiming at solving the problem, a method for automatic ontology building using the relational database resources to improve the efficiency is proposed in the paper. Firstly, mapping analysis of ontology and database is done. Secondly, construction rules of ontology elements based on relational database, which are used to generate ontology concepts, properties, axioms, instances are put forward. Thirdly Ontology automatic Generation System based on Relational Database (OGSRD) is designed and implemented.
