New challenges for cultural heritage have arisen from the expansion of digitalization, the broader range of available applications, and the increase in individuals and organizations interested in obtaining and sharing heritage knowledge. Supporting digital knowledge sharing relating to cultural heritage entails the challenges of structuring and transforming of data to information, information to knowledge and knowledge to application, etc. Digital cultural heritage processes must be knowledge-based and interoperable. Knowledge-based approaches using the concepts of linked data and ontologies are recognized as a basis for efficient solutions. The paper investigates the development of ontology for the domain of heritage buildings as part of the wider domain of cultural heritage. A two-iterations-based process is presented.
