This is the mindmap I made for the Baldwin Digital Library Project using Mind42, which is a new online mindmapping service. Mind42 is free and allows for collaboration, so it’s a nice service for many uses. However, I’m hoping to find something that will display the nodes in motion (like the Visual Thesaurus but I’m not looking for the search/query functionality). I want the motion purely for visual interest, but I’m having trouble finding something free and easy for use in creating the visual-motion mindmap. I’m guessing a simple Flash animation would be best for my needs, but I’d appreciate any recommendations for something that I could recommend to folks who don’t have Flash so that I can get people interested in mapping their workflows and then playing with them for efficiency.


  1. If you’re into mind mapping, you might find MindMapSearch useful. http://www.mindmapsearch.org/ If you do a search you will rarely get any results that do not relate to mind mapping.
    As well as a search engine box, this now has 17 category pages – all ads-free – of sites, with brief descriptions. These 179 sites make up the sources on which the search engine draws.

  2. Our team launched a new collaborative web-based mind mapping tool called Comapping. It is worth checking it out at comapping.com. I think it suits your needs in terms of nodes in motion and developed entirely in flash.
