Semantic search helps the user queries to be understandable for electric agents searching. In this way, ontology plays the main role to define the semantic and the relations between user queries. Ontologies provide features like a common vocabulary, reusability, machine-readable content, and also allows for semantic search, facilitate agent interaction and ordering and structuring of knowledge for the Semantic Web (Web 3.0) application. Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment is currently managing a large amount of data for 9 areas: land, mineral geology, water resources, environment, seas and islands, hydrometeorology, climate change, survey and mapping and remote sensing. Therefore, the need for data management, data integration and semantic search is essential and developing a domain ontology for natural resources and environment helps to solve these problems. In this paper, we propose a methodology for constructing a domain ontology for natural resources and environment based on integrating some existing ontologies (in English) and extending them using reliable resources in Vietnam. The ontology has been built is an important input for further researches on ontology learning, natural language processing, automated question answering and semantic search.
