I track discussions about mind mapping on Twitter and in blogs, and I often hear or read the question "Which is the best mindmapping software?" Anyone who gives you a single, immediate answer either knows you and your mindmapping activities very well, or is likely recommending the one that they've become familiar with themselves.

How do I introduce mind maps to my class and school?

"Mindmapping is the process of drawing up diagrams that show relations between various ideas, tasks or information. For many of us this shows to actually be a way of taking notes that can be more useful than just writing down keywords or sentences like we do on a to-do list."
Via Baiba Svenca, João Greno Brogueira, Isabel Barbosa
They may look like jumbled and messy flowcharts for the insane, but mind maps are actually extremely useful and perfect tools for brainstorming. You essentially take a flow of ideas and translate them into interconnected webs designed to help clarify your thinking (or mind, as it were).
You can use mindmaps also when you organize an event, to make sure that you don't forget anything, e.g. http://gustmeesfr.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/vdujwtjyx3uq-ri20vw-tipmindmap17-apr-09-15-171.jpg It's a mindmap which I used in 2004 already to organize a Theater piece about learning basics of #IT-Security which you can follow here http://gustmeesfr.wordpress.com/2011/12/28/securite-pc-et-internettheatre-interactif-et-pedagogique/

Robin Good: If you are looking for a content curation, mindmapping and presentation tool rolled into one, I strongly suggest you give a good road test to Mindomo.
But with time, and the increased size of my collections, I have been searching for valid alternatives which provided greater speed, better ways to display and view the mapped info and more options to extract value from my collections.
Mindomo, which I have been heavy-testing for the last six-months, is my new reference tool not just for mindmapping but for a) curating large collections of information into a navigable cohesive whole, b) creating prezi-like presentations without needing to become an engineer.
Specifically, Mindomo integrates lots of unique and very valuable features to the basic mindmapping toolset, including:
- Capture content via browser bookmarklet
- Navigate and zoom in-out easily
- Search and embed video clips
- Search and embed audio clips
- Automatically credit all media sources utilized
- Customize look of maps in many ways
- Create presentations from your mindmaps
- Import and export to different formats + embed
- Works and syncs on iPad and Android
- Collaborative editing
- Cross-platform offline desktop app
- Custom URLs for your mindmaps
- just to name a few.
Here's a good example of what I have been able to "curate" with Mindomo:
a very large collection of content curation tools
2) www.mindomo.com/mindmap/content-curation-for-education-98ccaad217074a07b9bff8b76effab8e ;
a navigable "presentation-map"
MindMeister and other mindmapping tools still provide good value, but in my humble opinion Mindomo, with its own limits and idiosyncracies, has earned my trust as being the most effective, powerful and feature-rich visual curation tool.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.

With DiagramPainter, you can quickly draw flowchart diagrams, mind mappings, organization charts, and more. With a few clicks, you can then integrate the diagram in your favourite program, by copying it to the clipboard as image, or saving it as file...
