Staff Pick: Mind Mapping Tools

Free Mind Mapping Programs to Help You Get Organized

Mind-mapping software programs, such as Inspiration, are used as a tool to brainstorm and organize ideas by representing them graphically as “idea maps.” These programs can be useful for anyone who struggles with organizing their ideas for a project or has difficulty with decision making. Most of us could benefit from the use of mind-mapping tools when we have a complex project but aren't sure where to begin.
