Mindmapping resources

I have previously blogged about mindmapping resources, but I find that I have not really become comfortable or adept at using it productively. If you are interested in learning more or discovering resources available, there is a great summary and table by Robin Good. He writes:

Here below the set of key basic characteristics that I have utilized to compare these selection tools to draw your own mindmaps, so that you can easily find the best fit for your needs:

  1. Price: Evaluate if you prefer a free service or a more complete solution with additional features.
  2. Software / Web-based: Specifies if you can use the tool inside your browser or you have to download and install a software on your hard-disk.
  3. Platform: Check if you can run the service on your operating system.
  4. Free trial: Indicates if the service allows you to evaluate it for free during a limited period.
  5. Collaborative working: Not all mind mapping services allows you to collaborate in real-time with your teammates. Find the ones that does.
There is also a more extensive list of resources but with less commentary provided by Jane Hart.
