Here's a link to Vic Gee's main Knol entitled "Concept map". There are cross reference items on related terms as well.

He preserved it in Freezepage when Google closed down Knol.

This was the main Knol on Concept maps now preserved at Freezepage

There were also two brief cross reference Knols:

"concept mapping": The process of making visual representations of knowledge in the form of diagrams, known as concept maps, that are used to evaluate or consolidate understanding, or capture knowledge. Concept mapping is widely-practised in educational establishments, as a way for students to enhance their understanding of a domain, and for academics to evaluate students' understanding of material that they are learning. It is also used by knowledge-management practitioners in business.

"concept mapper": Preparer of diagrams used to evaluate or consolidate

understanding, or capture knowledge. A generic term for a person who makes concept maps, or for software designed to support concept mapping on a computer.

Vegetable or royalty – take your pick with mindmapping

Whether you have vegetable or royal aspirations, I can confirm that you'll find mindmapping a great way of calming yourself down when you have many calls on your time, ideas buzzing round your head and objectives to meet. But it must fit your own personal style of thinking, and you must set aside the time to do it! That's how I bust stress, not by mapping out my stressful times. But we're all different, and maybe this will work for you.

Mindmapping to plan your life

To each individual reader, mindmap topics don't come much bigger than this -- on the personal level, anyway.

The mindmapping route to project-team building

This piece sets out what seems to me to be a novel use for mindmapping: Staffing a project, functional unit or department. It is a good illustration of the flexibility of the mindmapping approach. I often use mindmapping in drawing up job specifications and candidate profiles, but not quite in the way described here. I think I'll give it a try.

Research and mindmapping to kickstart your writing

Here is another slant on getting your writing going -- research and a dash of mindmapping.

Writing, come what may

There's only a brief mention of mindmapping here, but it's obviously important to the author. Anyway, to me it's a great article on getting moving with writing. I hope you find it so, too.
