Text-to-mindmap in one click – It’s Mappio!

I’m adding this one to Mind-mapping.org as part of this weekend’s update, but I want to put the word out now:

Mappio – it’s at mappio.com – will take a lightly indented text file and make a mind map from it.  The text must be formatted according to some simple guidelines and the indents show structure. 

For now, the maps are limited in many ways, but it is a very interesting approach to making mind maps.  Allowing pictures and hyperlinked nodes at this early stage is cool.  There’s no privacy for maps at present, but you need to be logged in as the maker to edit the text.

Here’s a mind map of mind-mapping.org that I made (click to go to the original at Mappio):


And this is the text that did the job:
