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.

Tony Buzan has defined these "rules" for Mind Mapping:

I believe these rules are well worth following if you use mindmaps for learning. They are very hard to follow completely and rigidly - and its not worth trying I have found - if you use mindmaps in adult life, in your work or projects.

Who invented mind mapping

This comes up from time to time - usually in the form of "Buzan didn't invent mind mapping".

Underlying theory of Concept Maps

Here are links to important scholarly papers by Joseph D. Novak and Alberto J. Cañas on Concept Maps, their theory and construction.

Semantic networks

"Semantic network" is a broad enough term to cover many forms of information map. Here is a link to an article by John F. Sowa, originally written for the Encyclopedia of Artificial Intelligence.

Visual representation of knowledge
