The aim of this paper is to construct rational surface automorphisms with positive entropy by means of the concept of orbit data. The concept enables us to introduce some mild and verifiable condition, and to show that if an orbit data satisfies the condition, then there exists an automorphism realizing the orbit data. Applying this result, we describe the set of entropy values of the rational surface automorphisms in terms of Weyl groups.
