Recently the use of ontologies is becoming more widly spread, however building ontologies is remains a challenging issue, especially for maritime domain, which has no structural resources in existence. In this paper, we propose a method that is based on Formal Concept Analysis(FCA) and illustrate this method on some examples. Formal concept analysis is a theory of data analysis which identifies conceptual structures among data sets. This method intends to make ontology building more efficient and allows for discovering necessity for new concepts and relations in an ontology, which leads to an ontology that has these entities described in a way suitable for knowledge exchange.
