ImaginationCubed and WriteMaps added

There are two new entries in the list:

ImaginationCubed: This is collaborative hand-drawing web-based software from G.E. that could conceivably be used for mind mapping.  It is flexible but, as it’s not mindmaps-aware, it is cumbersome for mind mapping.

WriteMaps: This is a web-based, on-line tool for planning web site maps (not mind maps).  It allows only a strict hierarchy.  Unlike some on-line diagramming software it makes good use of a large screen working area.  It works with Firefox only, at present.

As this shows hierarchical maps and can also display the planned web site as an outline, I felt it just about made the cut for inclusion.

Welcome to Glinkr

There’s a new on-line concept mapping tool – Glinkr.  It’s a little cumbersome to use at present, but these are early days and there’s no reason to think it won’t improve.  But I have a 24″ screen because I do a lot of mind mapping, modelling and diagramming, and this product confined me to one small rectangle when editing the map.  I hope they’ll open up the workspace soon.

With luck, you should be able to see a map I made of the many on-line mind-mapping, concept mapping and related diagramming sites here: http://www.glinkr.net/map/spot/177/

The links are hard to get at, but are in there.

This will go into mind-mapping.org in a day or so.

In case it doesn’t show if you visit their site, this is what I made:

Mapping on my mind (and on line).

7 diagramming and mind mapping products added to mind-mapping.org

After fussing over the new blog, I had time to catch up with some of the new entries I’ve been accumulating recently (more to come).  The current trend is still mainly for on-line, browser based services.

Cumulate Draw -=-  Free on-line diagrammer.  Could be used for mindmaps but not designed for that.  A poor-man’s MS Visio, perhaps?

SproutLiner -=-  Free on-line outliner.  No security for your outlines (no log in) if you use an easily-guessable name.  I have not tested simultaneous multi-user access but it does not appear to be designed for real-time collaboration.

Flowchart.com -=-  Free on-line diagramming tool.

WikiMindMap -=-  You can’t build your own mind maps with this tool (unless you do it by building a MediaWiki), but you can choose from the millions of topics covered in many Wikis.  I think this is an intriguing tool, but one of the great values of mind mapping is the process – the thinking you do as you build the mind map. I believe WikiMindMap should be seen as a quick way to grasp the structure of wiki articles rather than as a mind mapping tool.

ThinkFold -=-  On-line collaborative outlining service.

MAK (MindMap and Knowledgemanager)  -=-  Knowledge Content Management System – seems dormant.

InfiView -=-  Not a mind mapper or other form of tool for graphical information management, but a development environment for such products.

Projekt S60 -=-  Outliner for Symbian-based mobile phones.

InfoRapid Cardfile System  -=-  A kind of outliner.
