Abstract. The aim of this work was to design and implement a mechanism supporting collaborative sensemaking in a system of multiple mobile devices implementing spatial awareness. The design is based on an observation how people tend to manage and organize information in physical space. The developed mechanism attempts to determine the relation between atomic elements of information basing on relative position of these elements in time. The proposed solution is based on a simple Fuzzy Inference System and the theory of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps. Physically, the system was implemented for three tablets, for which spatial awareness is simulated with the use of motion tracking system. The system was evaluated in a user study.
