Mind Mapping Software

What is Mind Mapping Software
With Mind Map software you will be able to create maps on your computer. The software comes with graphics, symbols, colors and basically anything you need to make a personalized Mind Map

Why Use Mind Mapping Software
When I am mapping out something for work, I always use software because it gives me a professional, clean look. My maps are definitely NOT works of art, so showing them around the office is not my idea of getting respect :-) although, it would generate a lot of laughs. Also, when using the software, it's so easy to print out color copies for meetings or to hand to my colleagues.

Mind Mapping software is not convenient for all things, like note taking. You really have to find what works for you. My best guess is that you will use both handwritten maps and software-created maps, depending on the situation.

Of course if you are great at drawing, you may find the software is a hindrance...then there is the rest of us who love the software because it makes us look good!!

Free Mind Mapping Software
Up until recently I used to include a list of free Mind Mapping software available online. But there really isn't much sense in that anymore, you can Google it and get up-to-date info. There is only one free mapping software that I've enjoyed using and that is Mindomo. I prefer to pay for something and get customer support. On the other hand, people all over the Internet use free software and never have a problem. The choice, my friends, is up to you.

Mind Mapping in Business

Mind Mapping is a great way to get your thoughts organized. I don't know anyone who does not have to organize something, if not multiple things. Especially in business. I use mapping all the time to organize projects, meetings, etc. Once you start, you can't stop!

Mind Mapping in School

Study skills is the perfect place to implement mapping. I can think of six ways to use mapping as I am sitting here writing this, here you go:

  • outlining
  • to study battles in a war
  • map out topics such as energy force and matter
  • schedule all class syllabi so you don't miss any assignments
  • map out a story line
  • use a map as a review tool for exams.

There you go and that's just the tip of the iceberg as far as mapping goes.

Mind Mapping at Home

I often use mapping for home projects. Using maps to plan our family get aways helps me remember all those pesky little details. Things like medicines we may need, maps, flashlights, etc. Try using a map for your next trip. You will be sure to find it handy and helpful.
