More Power to your mind maps

More Power to your mind maps

Project and to-do list management are related and major categories of use for mind maps in business.  This has resulted in a healthy market in add-ins for popular mind mapping software. MindManager was first to add project management data attributes, and several add-in companies have exploited the data to make our lives easier when we track our daily tasks and projects. Nick Duffill is an old hand in this field but

Think and GraphMind

Think and GraphMind

Think Think is a Free Web App created using HTML5, Django, Google App Engine, and jQuery.  In Think you can create and view mind maps that are called thoughts. Touted as a mind mapping application, as can be seen from the screenshot, this supports concept mapping structures that depart from mind mapping’s hierarchical form. GraphMind GraphMind is a Drupal module (Drupal is a Content Management System).  Notable is the fact

DIY Chart and TreeGX

I have just added an online chart maker and a mind map building component for developers to mind-mapping.org. DIY Chart DIY (Do it yourself) Chart is a web-based tool that lets users make charts from static or dynamic data.  It operates on-line and responds dynamically to changes in the data, without a need to reload the web page.  These are just a few of the chart-styles available: The charts/graphs can be generated using

A couple of significant updates for 2010

Happy New Year!  Gradually catching up – more to go though.

Up next: MOT, RTIME, Thinking Space update

New on mind-mapping.org this week: MOT, RTIME and better information about Thinking Space. MOT MOT is an interesting knowledge-modelling tool.  The MOT acronym means “Modelling using Object Types”. A knowledge model is similar to a concept map, except that it is based on a typology of links and knowledge objects.  There’s a MOTPlus, as well.  I have no pricing information for these yet. RTIME RTIME is a software requirements and development

SimpleDiagrams [updated]

SimpleDiagrams [updated]

New at the Master List: SimpleDiagrams. SimpleDiagrams There’s a plethora of diagramming apps – web-based and desktop – I have a couple more waiting to be added.  But SimpleDiagrams is different.  It aims for a neat but definitely hand-drawn look.  It’s written with Adobe Air, so is platform independent, and is a desktop application, unlike most of the newer diagramming apps I’ve seen.  It’s in the early stages of development, and worth

Topicscape wants more users for new Beta

Here’s a turnup for the book – 3D Topicscape goes 2D! (in beta so far) I’m a bit late mentioning this.  I’ve written before that I’ve been using Topicscape since its first beta.  I use it every day for organising files for most of my projects and reference notes.  Now, Topicscape have a Beta out that gives a new option for viewing all the information stored in a Topicscape – you can opt

Cogspace

Cogspace

Cogspace is not software available for download or use in making your own maps, but it’s an interesting attempt at 3D information presentation. The sole example, covers limited knowledge domains on three axes.  Though not strong on visibility, it allows some dynamic exploration by rotation and the recall of text notes associated with the small topic balls. Explore here http://www.cogspace.net/index2.html It moved: http://www.michaelgaio.com/cogspace/ [Updated by Roy: 7 Feb 2014]   Vic Gee  (@VicGee on Twitter) http://www.mind-mapping.org/

Creately, CUECards, MindDecider, SpicyNodes and Inflow

I’ve done separate posts about two recent findings over the last couple of days: Diagramic and the filling in of a historical entry.  Time now for the remaining new items in Mind-mapping.org: Creately Creatley is a nice on-line diagram-drawing software with mind mapping as one of the type of diagrams supported.  It has a free version, and a Plus version with a rather special subscription scheme: Pay what you think it’s

Welcome to the ancient mindmapping-software vaults

Did you know that unless you dig deep, you’re only seeing part of  mind-mapping.org?  If you click through to the link above, for now, you’ll see 284 entries.  Observant readers will see that the top line adds “from a total of 349”.  So what’s with the missing 65? That’s where all the dead mind mapping and similar software packages go to their final rest.  If you want to see them, go
