What they say[edit]

“jKSImapper is a client/server graphical tool that allows multi-user elicitation of informal concept maps. (Last updated sometime in 1999).

. . . supports the drawing of concept maps by allowing the manipulation of node and arc objects. Figure 2 shows an instance of a jKSImapper program containing a concept map constructed after Sowa’s linguistic formalism called Conceptual Graphs. This figure shows rectangular shaped nodes (such as the ones labeled as TEACHER:x, WRITE and BOOK), ellipse shaped nodes (AGNT and OBJ), several directed and one non-directed arc, and a special kind of hollow node to encompass other nodes and arcs. This special type of node is called Context box (which is labeled NOT in this example).”

Observations[edit]

Concept Mapping software written in Java, so it will be muliplatform but there is no installer, just Java source code. It’s do-it-yourself. The website says ‘not fully-tested’.
