Here is another on-line application for exploring Wikipedia with mind maps, less well known thanWikiMindMap, perhaps, but doing a good job.


I signed up for this, and it allocated me a generous 0Mb of space for uploading maps, so I conclude that for sharing your own mind maps on-line, this is history, but it does have one operating function.  It can do a creditable job of mapping a topic from a Wikipedia page, pulling the structure from the section headings and levels, much as WikiMindMap does.

Clicking on red arrows next to a magnifying glass icon will cause Mapyourinfo to build a new map based on the word on that branch (again from Wikipedia).  Clicking a red arrow, when it appears on a node alone, just opens the appropriate Wikipedia page.

You can even download the resulting map as a FreeMind .mm file.

WikiMindMap is a little easier to use, but Mapyourinfo gets the job done and looks good.  If you start at its front page, you’ll have to dig to find how to call for a Wikipedia article, so here’s a shortcut: Go here and use the text box at the top left to search for the topic you’re interested in.

  1. The great advantage of mapyourinfo is allowing intercultural exchange meaning that you can search for a foreign language content in your own language. Say, you can type “innovation” and be searching the chinese wikipedia and still read everything in english.
