The Forensic Science Police Center 4 in Thailand wants to have a system that can help the officers to produce a report of a crime scene investigation. An obstacle is the sentence that is needed to be typed is a long sentence. However, the format of the report can be structured. Nouns or phases of 50 criminal cases were extracted and analyzed using noun-phase analysis. Ontology was constructed from the analysis. The ontology has five topics that are Indoor scene, Outdoor scene, Clue at scene, Evidence, Lost asset and Criminal gate. Each topic comprises of several categories. The system was also developed to test the coverage of the ontology. As measured by Precision, Recall and F-measure which is 74.21%, 95.71% and 83.86% respectively.
