Mindmap Builder
What is a mindmap?

A mindmap is a diagram that allows you to group concepts, tasks and other items around a central concept or subject. It is an intuitive means of representing the way the human mind thinks about the world.

What are mindmaps useful for?

People use mindmaps for all sorts of different purposes:

  • Brainstorming
  • Organizing research
  • Planning meetings
Where did mindmaps originate?

The term mindmap was popularized by a British psychologist named Tony Buzan on a 1974 BBC TV show called Use your head, but usage of this type of diagram has been going on for hundreds of years, with recorded instances stretching back to the 3rd century.

Making a mindmap builder with the jsPlumb Toolkit
