A sound basis for an interdisciplinary dialogue is highly important for cross-domain fusion (CDF) dealing with knowledge transfer between working groups situated in different research disciplines. In this paper, we present a literature-based concept map as one example to start an interdisciplinary dialogue between disciplines for the showcase of the concept “coast” and illustrate how such a concept map can be used to explicate various computer science challenges and provide inputs for CDF. We use the strengths of a concept map to display gathered knowledge and perspectives, and hence view the different disciplines have on “coast” and further highlight inter- and intra-categorical connections between several disciplines. With this example, we also want to point out the importance for the understanding of data originating from different disciplines and to raise awareness about the various methods and models that provide data and information for CDF approaches.
