We study the existence of different types of chimera states in a globally coupled sine circle map lattice with different strengths of intergroup and intragroup coupling. Some of the typical chimera phase configurations that can be observed in this system are aperiodic chimera states, splay chimera states and chimera states with spatiotemporally intermittent behaviour in the desynchronised group. These states are seen in different regions of the parameter space for three distinct kinds of initial conditions. We obtain the phase diagram containing the third type of chimera state, viz. the one with spatiotemporally intermittent regions, using complex order parameters. We construct an equivalent cellular automaton (CA) and reproduce the phase diagram in the region of interest by solving the mean field equation obtained for the CA.
