What is Mind Mapping?

Mind mapping is a highly effective method for getting information, ideas, and concepts in and out of your brain - it's a creative and logical means of note-taking and note-making that literally 'maps out' your ideas.

All mind maps have some things in common. They have a natural organizational structure that radiates from the center and use lines, symbols, words, color and images according to simple, brain-friendly concepts. A mind map converts a long list of monotonous information into a colorful, memorable and highly organized diagram that works in line with your brain's natural way of doing things.

One simple way to understand mind mapping is to compare it to a map of a city. The city center represents the main idea; the main roads leading from the center represent the key thoughts in your thinking process; the secondary roads or branches represent your secondary thoughts, and so on. Special images or shapes can represent landmarks of interest or particularly relevant ideas.

The mind map is the external mirror of your own radiant or natural thinking facilitated by a powerful graphic process, which provides the universal key to unlock the dynamic potential of the brain.

Mind Mapping with MindView

MindView lets you think and learn visually by creating mind maps. Mind mapping has been demonstrated to increase organizational skills and creativity, to develop memory retention and deepen understanding of concepts.

Not only is it proven that mind mapping increases learning, thinking and memory skills, but the use of multimedia presentations (integrating pictures, videos, sounds and so on) also strongly enhances understanding and retention of information.

MindView has therefore been optimized for mind mapping, planning and storyboarding web sites and multimedia presentations, and includes extensive export options to Microsoft Office.
