This paper discusses semantic technologies for multi-perspective issues of ontologies based on ontological viewpoint management. We developed two technologies and implement them in environmental and medical domain. The first one is conceptual map generation tool which allows the users to explore an ontology according to their own perspectives and visualizes them in a user-friendly form, i.e. conceptual map. The other is on-demand reorganization of is-a hierarchy from an ontology. They contribute to integrated understanding of ontologies and a solution of multi-perspective issues of ontologies.
