What is a Mind Map?

A mind map is a visual representation of a concept and the ideas that are generated from or linked to it. It can be used for strategy mapping and formulation, problem-solving, brainstorming, and conceptualizing. Mind maps are extremely useful for those who are involved in creative fields, strategic planning, and education.

How To Create a Mind Map?

  • First, identify and select the key concept of your mind map. This is the core of the mind map, from where the branches will connect to other concepts. The key concept can be represented by an image related to your chosen topic. You can get creative with your mind map by using colour schemes, images, and shapes of your choice.
  • You can then add new ideas or concepts as branches that radiate from the key concept. With mind maps, you also can identify hierarchies and go in-depth by adding sub-branches and map out your thought process by connecting more branches to each idea. Connect each branch to a keyword related to the selected topic.
  • Once you have laid down the fundamentals for your mind map, you can start getting creative. Select a shape or an image for the key concept that fits your topic, Creately’s mind mapping software offers a range of shapes from an extensive library, and you can even import images you would like to include in your work.
  • When it comes to organizing your ideas, you can color-code your mind map according to the area, topic, concept etc. Take your pick from a range of color palettes from Creately, and connect the branches to keywords.
  • Alternatively, you can select an editable mind map template from our template gallery and customize it according to your preferences and requirements. Creately offers a range of templates for different scenarios and topics.
  • With Creately, team collaboration on a mind map is a seamless process with in-app conferencing, where members can edit in real-time and give feedback.
