Mohiomap updated

Mohiomap, the web app that maps out your Evernote notebooks, has an update.  I reviewed this in September. Now it has a new kind of in-map search function (Ctrl+f) to highlight matches in notebook or note names.  This is in contrast with the search box at the top of the Mohiomap page, which effectively builds

Visual planning of web sites – Slickplan

Visual planning of web sites – Slickplan

Slickplan helps you plan visual maps for websites, and makes images, PDFs and links to send to website owners for discussion during the design stages.  It’s easy to use.  There’s an example here, based on a small part of the the Mind-Mapping.Org website. This is a free, online web app, based in your browser, so there’s nothing to download or install. I see no way of making flowcharts with this, despite

Skulduggery in the mind mapping apps

See the updates to this story at the end – it’s fascinating! Have you seen MindMapr, or the web site http://free-mindmapping.com/tool/? I was preparing an entry about these for mind-mapping.org and found an interesting tale. MindMapr is a Google Chrome browser app that lets you make maps without being on line.  Free-mindmapping.com is a site that lets you do the same, but with any HTML5-capable browser. These two look so

Ikonmap

Ikonmap

I added Ikonmap to Mind-mapping.org a few months back, but only now am I blogging about it. Ikonmap is an online, Flash-based mapper so it runs in your browser, but it is not collaborative software – there’s no multi-person editing.  You can’t even share a map for viewing online. It is free, so I mustn’t be too critical but there’s not much that can be done to make a map

MindV – a new online mind mapper

MindV – a new online mind mapper

MindV is a new browser-based mind mapper that uses Silverlight. It has a ribbon interface and a surprisingly good selection of mind mapping functions for a version 1.0 product, with new features promised (more later). There are one or two rough edges, but the user interface and feel when editing maps already make it more like a desktop product.

It should be useful for project management – basic task information and other items can be stored with each node … (read the full article…)

Web voyages by mind map

New in Mind-mapping.org are two tools to help show related web sites with their connections shown visually: Pearltrees and Trailmeme. Just the kind of stuff we like!

Their purposes are closely related, and that prompted me to take a broader look in this post at the ‘map the web’ scene and three quite different approaches, by adding SpicyNodes. These offer a useful improvement on simple lists or even outlines.

VivaMind – online mapper

VivaMind is a browser-based application for making mind maps (kinda – or bubble charts). It allows you to add text, video, image and code attachments to nodes. The control to add images and videos includes a nice little Google / YouTube search box to help locate suitable material.  Each node can also be set up to take you to a web page. It’s not clear what the code attachments can
