NoSQL systems are used to manage massive databases that verify 3V: Volume, Variety and Velocity. Generally, these systems are known by the characteristic "schema less" which means that we can create a database without defining the data schema beforehand. This property offers more flexibility and speed by allowing the evolution of the data model during the exploitation of the base. However, to formulate queries on the database, the user needs a precise knowledge of data model. In this article, we propose a process for the automatic extraction of the conceptual model of a document-oriented NoSQL database. To do this, we use the Model Driven Architecture (MDA) architecture that provides a formal framework for automatic model transformation. From a NoSQL database, we propose a set of transformation rules with QVT to generate the conceptual model in the form of a UML class diagram. An experimentation of the extraction process was carried out on an application in the medical field.
