This research aimed to 1) develop an Ontology based on cultural knowledge in Loei province; 2) develop a semantic searching system for utilizing the developed Ontology. The system was intended to solve the problem that current cultural information cannot be acquired from a single source and the data received cannot meet the requirements. The research used the Ontology as a major component in the form of OWL (Web Ontology Language). The searching system was accomplished by using SPARQL. The results show that by integrating the developed Ontology with Lunar Calendar, the Ontology could better describe the meaning of culture and could provide users with required information. The system was evaluated based on user satisfaction which suggests that the satisfaction regarding the semantic web and usefulness is relatively in a very high level. The system was evaluated to measure its performance by examining the system’s and F-measure, precision, and recall. The result shows that the system performed well with the precision = 0.77, recall = 0.83 and F-measure = 0.80.
