This paper presents a rule-based approach to automatically associate low-level actions of team members -performed on a tabletop-based open-ended concept mapping application-with higher order sub-processes. We illustrate the approach by presenting and discussing two versions of the same visual representation of the identified sub-processes: visualisations completely crafted by humans versus those automatically crafted by our rule-based algorithm. We describe our lessons learnt and discuss the potential of our approach, challenges encountered and possible avenues for future work.
