[Objective] Find the collaboration pattern of domain Ontology construction based on FCA with the concepts and techniques in cloud computing environment. [Methods] Partition the formal context with the techniques in MapReduce framework in cloud computing environment, construct concept lattices locally, use the ideas from experts and users to modify domain Ontology. [Results] Successfully design a new collaboration pattern for construction domain Ontology in cloud computing environment, improve degree of automation of the process of construction, people with different privileges participate in the process. Thereby increasing the efficiency and quality of Ontology. [Limitations] This collaborative pattern is still in the conceptual design phase. The pattern requires multi-users participation in practice under cloud computing to improve collaboration solutions. [Conclusions] The construction of domain Ontology based on FCA can be extended in cloud computing environment. People from different levels can modify the Ontology via the collaboration.
