The visualisation method used for Mind Mapping
This book focuses on the visualisation method used for Mind Mapping. Lengler and Eppler attribute the following properties to Mind Maps:
Mind Maps are a means of visualising concepts. This is more than the mere presentation of information, since additional clarification is provided.
Mind Maps are used to visualise knowledge structures (as opposed to processes).
Mind Maps provide both an overview and the detail of a theme.
Mind Maps are useful for developing and displaying a multiplicity of ideas and information.
