The solution of multi-agent system could be applied for air pollution monitoring and control systems modelling in the context of extending the area of web based applications to environmental systems. As the intelligent agents that compose such a multiagent system need to communicate between them and also with external agents they must share parts of their ontologies or they must identify the correspondent common terms. In this paper, we focus on the topic of ontology mapping in such a multi-agent system.
