Online documents provide a rich information resource for aiding the generation of concept-map-based knowledge models, but analyzing resources to select concepts and links is a time consuming task. This paper describes ongoing research on harnessing the information in unstructured textual documents, using information extraction algorithms, to generate a preliminary version of a concept map from a text document, for human refinement. The paper presents strategies for this task, implemented in an initial algorithm. The concept extraction phase of the algorithm has been evaluated with encouraging results
