GraphMind GraphMind is a Drupal module (Drupal is a Content Management System).  Notable is the fact

Welcome Topicscape Pro 2.0 – tags, swinging panels, Oh My!

There is a new version of Topicscape Pro out now – version 2.0 and it’s a major upgrade.  Long-time followers of this blog will know that I was one of the early beta testers when Topicscape first went public.  I’ve used it ever since as an information organiser and even occasionally for mind mapping.

Origins of mind mapping and concept mapping [updated]

For too long now we have had many statements about the origins of visual mapping but there are too few examples, to my way of thinking. I’ve just written about early visual thinking maps and included a couple of cases. If any can add to the list by providing other early examples, I’d love to have

Visuwords – a VisualThesaurus competitor

Here’s a quick update after my recent post – I found an on-line mapper showing the relationships between words, called Visuwords.
