A wiki, all about mind mapping

A new wiki about mind mapping, concept mapping and associated topics has just been launched. Although it has been built up with very extensive content before launch, you can add to it yourself. All contributions that follow its policies of being written in a way that is clear, factual and without hype are welcome.

Its writers bring decades of experience of mind and concept mapping to this wiki, and are continually adding to it. Use it to learn from, or use it to bring your own experience to this comprehensive resource for the benefit of others.

Mindmaps Directory update has long had a remarkable mindmaps directory and it has just been updated. There are now more than 700 mind maps from all over the Web.

This is the only library of mind maps that allows you to browse freely, filter according to the type of map (there are concept maps, pure mind maps, bubble diagrams, spidergrams, and others), select by subject in the tag cloud or search by keyword.

Each map thumbnail has a link to its original Web page.

This is an outstanding resource for the business mapper, the student and the creative person looking for fresh ideas and a new approach.
