A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks or other items linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. It is used to generate, visualize, structure and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, and decision making.

It is an image-centered diagram that represents semantic or other connections between portions of information. By presenting these connections in a radial, non-linear graphical manner, it encourages a brainstorming approach to any given organizational task, eliminating the hurdle of initially establishing an intrinsically appropriate or relevant conceptual framework to work within.

A mind map is similar to a semantic network or cognitive map but there are no formal restrictions on the kinds of links used.

Mind Map Laws

Mind Map® Laws

These are the brain-reflecting foundation structures of a Mind Map®. The more of them you follow, the more effective your Mind Map®.

* Start in the centre with an image of the topic, using at least 3 colours.

* Use images, symbols, codes and dimensions throughout your Mind Map®.

* Select key words and print using upper or lower case letters.

* Each word word/image must be alone and sitting on its own line.

* The lines must be connected, starting from the central image. The central lines are thicker, organic and flowing, becoming thinner as they radiate out from the centre.

* Make the lines the same length as the word/image.

* Use colours – your own code – throughout the Mind Map®.

* Develop your own personal style of Mind Mapping®.

* Use emphasis and show associations in your Mind Map®.

* Keep the Mind Map® clear by using Radiant hierarchy, numerical order or outlines to embrace your branches.
