ChkLines - Mind Maps

A mind map is a simple yet effective way to map out a topic visually in an organic way. It usually starts with one central topic then repeatedly branches out, breaking down information into a hierarchy of its visual components. The items in the mindmap can be positioned spatially and formatted for size and colour to help with memory and recall. Mind mapping goes by different names: concept mapping, spider diagrams, brainstorm diagrams, and more.
