Purpose of Mind Maps

Mind Maps are created for organizing information. It helps you organize ideas produced in a thinking process, allowing you to visualize an idea and other ideas related to it.

Mind map layout ideas in a map structure. In the map, the primary idea appears in the center (we call it the center node). Ideas related are branched out from the center node.

Understanding mind maps

Mind maps are very simple to read and create. Typical mind maps contain two symbols — idea and connector. Some mind maps include also emoji, free text, embedded images, etc. It’s perfectly alright to include them in your mind map, just don’t spend all your time on enriching your mind map with that stuff. Keep in mind that the reason for mind map creation is to keep track of your ideas.
