The OWL (Web Ontology Language) is the de facto standard ontology description language used by the Semantic Web. Because OWL is mainly designed for use by applications that need to process the content of information, it is difficult to read and understand by domain experts to build or verify domain ontologies expressed by OWL. ORM (Object Role Modeling) is a conceptual modeling language with graphical notations, its models/schemas can be translated into pseudo natural language that make it easier, also for domain experts who is a non-IT specialist, to create, check and adapt the knowledge about the UoD (Universe of Domain). Based on formal logic analysis of OWL DL and ORM and extending ORM notations, mapping rules has been presented to visualize OWL DL ontologies with ORM.
