Mind mapping search engine

The specialist mind mapping search engine
Google Custom Search
Use this to do a focused Google search of valued mind-mapping websites. This search box ignores the mindmapping bandwagon all-adverts sites, the trivial three-line posts about someone's new mind-map, and pages for old software on software download sites.

So what?
So if you search for, say, "finance", then everything returned will be related to finance and mind mapping. And because the web sites have been chosen carefully (without fear or favour), you won't see web pages that just happen to include the words "mapping", "finance" and "mind".


The specialist concept mapping search engine
Google Custom Search
Use this to do an equivalent, focused search of chosen concept-mapping websites.

Framework for mind mapping

Here is a link to a set of free templates for many types of mind maps. This is good solid stuff, and if you have MindManager, there's no reason not to get it.
But if you don't have MindManager, well, there's still no reason to hold back - go and pick up the MindManager Viewer from MindJet's site. That is also free.


Knowledge mapping for communities

Here's an interesting slideshow in which authors Simon Buckingham Shum and Alexandra Okada make a case for a move away from text towards knowledge or mind mapping presentation in a knowledge community. Their objective is to change cognition, no less.

Visual mapping and recession-proofing your job
