What is Concept Mapping Software?
Concept mapping software lets you visualize your ideas without interrupting your creative flow. As you think of a new idea just add a shape to your concept map and type. Ideas will be loosely connected to each other. You can always go back to organize and create logical groupings and hierarchies later.
A graphic organizer like SmartDraw will let you brainstorm ideas by making a concept map or mind map.
The main topic will be in the center of the map and related ideas will radiate out from it.
