According to the problem of no unified standard existed in transformation from thesaurus to Ontology, this paper introduces the knowledge organization system SKOS recommended by W3C as a standard in the transformation,analyses the characteristics of SKOS and transforms the chosen paragraph of UKAT thesauri to Ontology using SKOS core vocabulary, then evaluates the Ontology using skeletal methodology, and points out the characteristics and limitations of the Ontology.

Key wordsSKOS      Ontology construction      Thesaurus
