7 инструментов для создания интеллект-карт

Labyrinth

Labyrinth is a simple yet a fun to use mindmap software. It does not have a huge set of options and features; however, lets you create mindmaps pretty easily. The absence of high end formatting options turns out to be a positive point, as you do not have to focus on how your mindmap will look, and you can concentrate on your ideas to put them down. One can go with it if all you need is a mind mapping software without complex options and don’t want to make your mind map visually appealing.

There are two ways provided to put down your ideas: enter text or freehand drawing. To begin, simply click on the blank canvas to enter text/draw for the parent node. Now to insert Child nodes, click on the canvas where you want to place it, then enter text or draw. Remember, if you want to make a Sibling node for the Child node, you will have to click and select the Parent node first. Not selecting the Parent node will create a new Child node for the Child node created for the Parent node. A node can be selected and pasted to a new location on the canvas.

You can make the entered text Bold, Italic, or Underlined if you want. Double click on a node to edit the text.

There’s an option to add Images, but when you browse and add an image, its not displayed.

The created map can be exported as image in PNG format. Export the complete map, or only the visible area.

hUMLa

hUMLa is a free and crossplatform mind mapping software, which is primarily a UML-class diagram maker. It is developed in Java, so it can run on Windows, Mac, or Linux.

By default, it creates a UML-class diagram, and when you select the Mindmap option, the diagram is converted into mindmap. Basically, UML-class diagram has rectangular nodes, and mindmaps has oval nodes. Also, you can define connection directions in UML-class diagram, but directions disappear in mindmaps.

To create a node, simply click on the canvas and type the content in the dialog box that appears. Click on the canvas to make another node. To connect two nodes, simply drag he mouse pointer from one node till another node. As soon as you release the drag, a dialog box appears, where you can define the connection type (only works with UML-class diagram).

You can save your project to use later, or export the mindmap as an Image in PNG format.

1. Coggle

Coggle is an online tool for creating mind maps. The app lets you and your team collaborate on notes, brainstorm ideas, and create project plans. Every mind map starts with a single central topic. Click the Plus (+) button to add a branch and enter your text in the box.

You can format text, insert links, add images, and icons to elaborate the key points. From here onwards, continue adding branches as per your needs. You can even create a cross-link to other items in a mindmap. Open the context menu, press the Shift key to bring the cross-link icon. Then, drag the cross-link line.

You can create three private diagrams with a free account, collaborate in real-time, and upload unlimited images. The export options include .MM, TXT, Microsoft Visio, PDF, and JPEG. Check out the to explore premium features.

Unique Features

  • Add multiple central nodes in a single workspace. Then, create loops and branches to connect other mind maps and see relationships.
  • It supports keyboard shortcuts and has a vast collection of templates in Coggle Gallery to quickly start your projects.
  • View the version history of the mind map. Check who last edited the map along with the date and make a copy of it at a particular time.
  • Message team members, leave notes, and even chat in real-time to brainstorm ideas. You can auto-arrange branches to associate the content of each branch with the things around it.

Collaboration

  • You can share a map in your network.
  • To do this, you need to specify a port and a password. Then you are the master.
  • Others that reach your master-host and the port can connect with the password.
  • They will get exactly the same map as a local copy.
  • Each change from any participants is distributed among all participants.
  • To end the collaboration, just choose «Share map» again. Then, some seconds later, all clients see, that the collaboration has ended.
  • The title of the window shows the hostname, port and the participants of the collaboration.
  • Observe, that there is little security around. Only the password is present, but the communication is in plain.

Mit FreeMind Ideen visualisieren

FreeMind ist eine kostenlose, in Java entwickelte Open-Source-Software zur Erstellung von Mindmaps. Gedanken, Überlegungen, Ideen und Konzepte können mit FreeMind in einer Baumstruktur angelegt und visualisiert werden. Die Software steht für Windows, Mac OS und Linux zum Download bereit.

Mit Mindmaps visualisieren und strukturieren: Das sind die Funktionen von FreeMind

Mindmaps sind ein einfaches Konzept, um Gedanken auf Papier zu visualisieren und in eine übersichtliche Form zu bringen. Das halb-grafische Verfahren unterstützt vor allem assoziativ denkende Menschen dabei, neue Ideen und Zusammenhänge zu entwickeln und in Kategorien einzusortieren. Das funktioniert vor allem analog sehr gut, doch auch auf PC und Mac findet die Technik Anwendung.

Mit verschiedenen Ansätzen versuchen Softwareentwickler, das Prinzip der Mindmap auch digital nutzbar zu machen. FreeMind bietet als freies, quelloffenes Tool einen großen Funktionsumfang, um umfangreiche Mindmaps zu erstellen. Dazu gehören verschiedene geometrische Formen, mit denen sich Text hervorheben lässt. Auch die Möglichkeit, Links zu Video- und anderen Dateien und Webseiten im Internet direkt in der MindMap abzulegen, ist sinnvoll.

FreeMind Anleitung: So funktionieren Mindmaps

Wie bei einer klassischen Mindmap auf Papier stellt auch bei einer digitalen FreeMind-Mindmap ein großer Hauptknoten den Startpunkt für weitere Überlegungen dar. Die Nutzung der Software ist einerseits per Maus möglich. Vor allem ist das Programm aber auf die Verwendung mithilfe der Tastatur ausgelegt. Die Nutzung der vielfältigen Funktionen fällt vielen Einsteigerinnen und Einsteigern daher zunächst schwer.

Ist FreeMind kostenlos?

FreeMind ist kostenlose Open-Source-Software unter der GPL-2-Lizenz. Das bedeutet, dass der Quellcode offen einsehbar ist und von jedem weiterbearbeitet werden darf. Auch die Nutzung und Weitergabe der fertigen Software ist kostenfrei erlaubt. Dabei müssen allerdings die genauen Lizenzbedingungen der GPL-2 eingehalten werden. Im Netz gibt es außerdem viele kostenlose Tutorials, die in die Bedienung einführen.

FreeMind ist in Java geschrieben. Daher muss vor der Installation der Software eine Java-Laufzeitumgebung installiert werden. Unter Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 und Mac OS erledigt das in jedem Fall die Installationsroutine von FreeMind. Unter Linux muss gegebenenfalls noch ein wenig von Hand nachgeholfen werden. Das FreeMind-Wiki unterstützt interessierte Linux-Nutzer bei der Installation aber mit zahlreichen Tipps.

FreeMind – was sind die besten Alternativen?

Neben FreeMind gibt es weitere Mindmapping-Anwendungen für Desktop-PCs und andere Systeme. Besonders hervor tut sich dabei zum Beispiel Freeplane, das eine direkte Weiterentwicklung von FreeMind darstellt. Denn während von FreeMind seit 2014 keine neue Version mehr erschienen ist, wird an Freeplane bis heute fleißig weiterentwickelt. Freeplane ist etwas einfacher zu bedienen als FreeMind.

Darüber hinaus sind zum Beispiel XMind (für Windows) und SimpleMind (plattformübergreifend) sehr beliebte Anwendungen dieser Kategorie. Anders als bei FreeMind und Mindplane handelt es sich bei diesen Programmen allerdings um kostenpflichtige Downloads. Wer sie ohne Gutscheine nutzen will, muss gegebenenfalls tief in die Tasche greifen. Mit DroidPlane existiert eine zu Freeplane kompatible Anwendung für Android-Tablets und -Smartphones.

Kompliziert, aber mächtig

FreeMind ist eine gerade zu Beginn nicht einfach zu bedienende Software. Die steile Lernkurve lohnt sich aber, denn der Funktionsumfang, der FreeMind und den Ableger Freeplane ausmacht, sucht seinesgleichen. Wer neu in FreeMind einsteigen will, sollte allerdings besser gleich zu Freeplane greifen. Die Software ist ein bisschen moderner und etwas einfacher zu bedienen als der Vorgänger.

Obwohl bei einer funktionalen Software wie FreeMind vor allem die Features im Vordergrund stehen, sieht man der Anwendung den Zahn der Zeit doch an. Die Fensteraufteilung wirkt altmodisch und das Interface angestaubt. Dass die Software nur mithilfe einer Java-Laufzeitumgebung funktioniert, sorgt auf schwächeren Rechnern darüber hinaus immer wieder für Performanceprobleme.

Testimonials

What users say about FreeMind includes the following.

Krishna Teja, 24.3.2011:
For about 6 years I have only been dreaming of organizing my life in
some manner. There are far too many variables and unknowns, and I never knew
how or where to begin organizing. After 6 years of procrastination and
a catastrophic crash in life, I hit mind maps and FreeMind. It looks like the
search is over, I can now organize my thoughts in one place and get a clear
picture of my own life. The flexibility of the software is only limited by one’s
imagination. Hats off to the team for contributing this gem to the open
source world. After only days of using this software I can say its the best
thing since sliced bread. My joy is boundless. I hope to stick to FreeMind throughout
my life to organize stuff.

Krishna Teja,

Subject: my second brain

did not know i have second one… until i’ve found freemind. no more feeling
like an idiot on morning company meeting after a big hangover — just ten minutes
long look on mindmap and you’re back in saddle, ready to go champion! not even
mentioning other pluses it has in ordinary work situations, of course 🙂 what
i want is to say big THANK YOU

Andrea, 25.7.2008: I rediscovered Freemind last week while my proposal for a multi million USD
contract was being reviewed in a tender in a ministry.
The reviewer was keeping all details under perfect control at lightspeed, giving
hard times to us proposers noticing every single missing or glitch in our
documents.

How could he be doing this?

I just asked: mind mapping software was the response. He made a big mind map
of the whole proposal and checked all the nodes one by one. As easy as this.

Well, I was fascinated, after passing the tender review (YESSSSSSS!!!) I just
browsed my PC where freemind was sitting quiet since a couple of years. I just
launched it and applied it to my current project: a BIG software system delivery
to an important bank.

Guys, in 3 days I made a perfect job in tracking activities, preparing project
status meeting, todo lists, reports, software test result diagrams… I’m just
amazed.

>From now on I’ll use it for everything.

Thanks for this precious piece of software.

Rich, 14.4.2004: First off, congratulations on a truly awesome application with a fantastically intuitive interface… I thought I’d spend 10 minutes evaluating it but I had so much fun I ended up playing for hours — I even missed lunch!

Daniel, 1.2.2003: How do I know that FreeMind is a high productivity tool? The answer is I don’t. I am using FreeMind on daily basis and am very satisfied with the benefits it brings me. What I really consider important is that when I use FreeMind, most of the time I don’t have to
ask myself «how do I do this thing in FreeMind», but I rather just do what I need without thinking about it. FreeMind makes my task of collecting, organizing and analyzing information on a given topic much easier.

James, 14.10.2002: Now, having tried out the new release, I can tell you: It’s brilliant! Well done!

Henning, 21.11.2002: I recently started using FreeMind and I’m rather delightet. After getting to known it, it immediately became one of my every-day-use-tools.

Joe, 20.1.2003: I downloaded Freemind several months ago and it has become a vital part of my daily activites. I am enormously grateful for the program.

Paul, 9.2.2003: What a splendid piece of work!

I also use it at home to capture my martial arts learning as I head towards a
black belt. I put in the basic movements and the katas or arranged groups of
movements. I use that when I practice at home.

Perry, 10.4.2003: I have been using FreeMind for two or three months now, and find it totally indispensable! I simply can’t say enough good things about how it has helped me get on top of an overwhelming workload. I’ve tried task managers and project managers ad-nauseam, and they are
either too simplistic or too cumbersome.

FreeMind

FreeMind is an opensource mind mapping software with awesome capabilities to put whatever you have in your mind, onto a digital canvas. Though this software has been discontinued, you can easily download it from the internet. It is a cross platform mind mapping software and works on Windows, Mac, and Linux, as it is developed in Java.

Create multiple mind maps in different tabs at a time using a wide array of tools and formatting options. If you have an idea, start working on it right away by putting it down in a creative way. Encrypted mind maps can be created here as well.

To let you put down your ideas, start with a Parent Node, and start building ideas or expanding ideas by adding new Child nodes and Sibling nodes. For each Child node, you can add their Child nodes and Sibling nodes; this gives you freedom of limitless idea expansion and brainstorming with this free mind mapping tool. Encrypted nodes can also be inserted if you want. Click on a node to add text to it. You can also add icons from a wide variety of them available, add hyperlink (to a link, file, or a text field), image, graphical link, etc. to a node. You also get option to insert rich format text along with tables in your mindmap.

Now for more detailing, you are free to change node color, node background color, node edge color, node edge style, node edge width, and make a node blinking. Node style can be changed between bubble or fork. If you want, you can fold a node’s Children nodes to minimize it. If you want a replica of a node and its Children nodes, select and copy it to paste wherever you want on a mind map.

You can either save your work with this mindmap software, or export as document or images. Save a mindmap as .mm file and export as HTML, Flash, OpenOffice Writer document, PNG, JPEG, PDF, SVG, etc. Print and print preview options are also available with this mindmap program, which let you print your mindmap without saving.

To start it next time from terminal without setting vars

To start it next time from terminal without setting vars, in another terminal set JAVA related variables in the profile:

echo export '''JAVA_HOME'''=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0.13/ >> ~/.bashrc
echo export '''PATH'''=$'''PATH''':/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0.13/bin/ >> ~/.bashrc

The launcher for Freemind will appear under Applications -> Office.

Run Freemind from the zip

This isn’t how ubuntu folks like to do things, but for programs that are not maintained with up-to-date versions in their repositories, or any ppa repository, you can often easily run such programs if they are in java without «installing» them. Download the «bin-max» zip version of whichever freemind version you’d like. Unzip. To run Freemind in Linux (like Ubuntu), there are 2 good options. Before that, it is recommended that you create a folder called «Programs» or something where you can save java applications like Freemind, Freeplane, Cron-o-meter, etc. You should also rename the unzipped application folder that you place there to just «freemind», so you don’t have to fix the directory paths in your launcher when you update the program version in the future.

Option 1. command line (terminal): open a terminal and change directory to the place where you put your unzipped Freemind folder, for example:

cd ‘/home/YOUR-USER-NAME/Programs/freemind’

then, run the freemind.sh:

sh ‘freemind.sh’

Option 2. instead, you can make a nice little entry in your applications menu with the icon, which basically automates the above actions. This way is nice, because then you can launch it easily with GNOME Do or similar app launchers. To do this in Ubuntu (the process is similar in other distros: search for ‘create launcher application’ on google or something if you need to): Search online for image file: «freemind.png», download, save next to freemind folder. Open System>Preferences>Main Menu. In the options, navigate to the submenu location where you’d like it to go, such as «Office». Then click New Item, and create its launcher like so: To the left, click on the icon, and browse to the icon file freemind.png, select. For name, put Freemind, obviously. Then for command, enter this:

sh -c «cd ‘/home/YOUR-USER-NAME/Programs/freemind’ && sh ‘freemind.sh'»

When you upgrade, it is best if you take note of any option preference changes you have made, and then apply them again in the new version rather than trying to use the same preferences file.

Alternatives

There are some alternatives to Freemind like VYM:

sudo apt-get install vym

or like kdissert (requires KDE):

sudo apt-get install kdissert

But they are not compatible with Freemind maps, so if you already have Freemind maps, it is better to use Freemind. I have found Freemind most productive and usable due to its shortcuts.

FreeMind Review

FreeMind is a mind-mapping utility written in Java, meant to be a high productivity tool. Want to write an epic sci-fi novel, create a series of self-help books, or create a new religion from scratch? FreeMind might be the thing for you. Adept users can refactor essays the same way software devs refactor code. Or maybe you’d prefer to curate a personal knowledge base simply, as a personal encyclopedia of your research and insights that’s much easier to manage than a pulpy notebook.

What FreeMind Can Do

— Keep track of projects, subtasks, subtask states, and time recording

— Project workplace links to files, executables, and information sourcing

— Workplace for online research with Google and other sources

— Keep a collection of expandable notes with links

— Essay writing, brainstorming, with an array of status trackers

— Database curating

— Comment enriched Internet favorites and bookmarks, with multiple highlighting and style options

FreeMind Features

— Fully functional HTML tracking

— Supports folding- its essential property

— Fast one-click navigation, folding/unfolding on a single click

— Large undo memory

— Smart Drag and Drop, including nodes copying, dragging and dropping off several selected nodes; dropping texts and list of files from without

— Nimble copying and pasting, including links from HTML or organizing pasted content based on the number of leading spaces

— Export of map to HTML, with folding

— Facility finds where the found items will be shown individually as you cycle through «find next», and the maps are unfolded for only the current item

— The ability to use and edit lengthy multiline nodes; even within new lines

The option to decorate your nodes with various built-in icons, colors, and fonts

— Low exposure to the risk of switching away to other mind mapping tools. This is possible because FreeMind stores your maps in an XML format. If you have an extensive collection of maps made in FreeMind, and you want to switch over to another program, writing a conversion script should be easy. This is particularly true if that program has a Visual Basic scripting facility.

FreeMind will run on just about any system you like. It’s won awards for its flexibility, its features and performance. It’s a muscular mind mapping tool, with complex diagrams, branches, and icons to distinguish and interconnect your notes- connect them, and embed links to your maps for fast referencing. FreeMind can export maps into many different formats. Compared to most of the newer similar tools it looks a bit old- but it’s still useful, especially if you’re interested in function, and not just beautiful graphics.

4. InfoRapid KnowledgeBase Builder

Traditional mind mapping tools are hierarchical. When you start creating complex linkages, they quickly get confusing and unusable. But with this app, you can join multiple ideas, and yet it adjusts your map dynamically to an elegant layout. You click a topic, and everything rearranges around it automatically.

You can build a mind map from scratch, import notes, links, images, and attach them to any item or a relation. There is also an option to integrate it with a data source to create a mind map from text files, Wikipedia articles, and tweets.

To get started, type in the topic name and click New Item. For each topic, type a name and add a description. You can add descriptive linking phrases on relationship lines and select colors, dotted or solid lines. Or even customize the style of the ends, with or without arrows.

Unique Features

  • Insert multiple items, edit or delete them, and use drag-and-drop for moving relations.
  • Toggle between a 2D and 3D displaying mode and show or hide cross-connections. You can export 3D mind maps with hyperlinks and embed them on your website.
  • Build a map from MediaWiki, including all the sister Wikipedia sites. And import outlines from CSV, RDF, XSD, and more.
  • Generate flashcards to memorize items and practice the quiz sessions.

Download: Windows 10 ($10), Mac ($9) | iOS ($9), Android ($11)

Docear

Docear is developed as an Academic Literature Suite, where you can create vast mindmaps. This open source mind mapping software is free to use and is cross-platform, available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The tools and options available to build mindmaps are extensive; lets take a look.

The interface displays options to add Parent node, Child node, Sibling node, Summary node, or Free node. You can easily move a node up/down/right/left, split node, merge nodes, and do much more.

The option to connect two nodes lets you change connection direction, opacity, connector shape, width, etc. Links can be added to nodes; these links can be hyperlinks or links to files stored locally on your PC or network.

Encryption is provided for security. You can either create an encrypted mindmap, or simply encrypt a branch.

Let me mention some more features of this freeware, that are worth mentioning: LaTex Support, Text formatting, Node formatting, Advanced filter, Time manager, Script support, Icons, and much more.

Save your mindmap in standard .mm format, or export as HTML, HTM, XML, and JPEG.
