As semantic web study progresses, domain ontologies built by engineers are based on writer’s academic background and research interests, preventing a uniform or standardized ontology using standard ontology building tools and ontology languages and restricting interoperability. Current ontology building tools focus on creating, editing and inferencing ontology efficiently but do not offer a way for merging heterogeneous domain ontologies. This paper presents a way for merging heterogeneous ontologies efficiently and correctly.
