Causal map integration is helpful to broaden group member’s eyesight and sheds insight on the detection of overall group’s cognition tendencies. However the existing causal map integration approaches are either based on human intervention mechanism that is criticized with researcher bias, or based on syntactic mechanism that lacks of semantic. In order to improve the current causal map integration methodology and practice, this study proposes the conceptualization and formalization of an innovative causal map integration approach, automatic semantic causal map integration, grounded on the Sowa’s Conceptual Graph Theory and Kosko’s Fuzzy Knowledge Combination Theory. The system prototype with an example is also illustrated.
