To create a geo-collaborative hyperhistory, physical areas associated with data and multimedia content are geolocalized over a map, from which links to other areas can be generated, which define paths of exploration of the hypernarrative. In this work in progress, we aim at facilitating the creation of geo-collaborative hyperstories, by redesigning the HCI of an existing application using implicit HCI principles. Implicit HCI (iHCI) advocates using the user's context information to anticipate the actions they want to perform, facilitating interaction and alleviating their cognitive load. iHCI has usually used as single-user interaction; therefore, we explore ways to extend its reach by taking contextual information from a group that works collaboratively. The result is a redesign proposal of six frequent tasks during creating and reading a hypernarrative described according to the existing literature on iHCI.
