Mind maps

How to mind map

A mind map, also called a spider gram, is a diagram representing ideas, words or processes related to a central idea.

The central idea is placed in the centre, secondary ideas are then placed around it, and tertiary ideas are then placed around the secondary ideas. Mind maps are often used in group sessions to promote brain-storming and to capture as many of the groups' ideas as possible in a non-hierarchical way.
