Welcome to Mindjet MindManager Viewer! You are viewing a map that was created by Mindjet MindManager visual mind mapping software.

What is Mindjet MindManager Viewer?

MindManager Viewer is a self-contained application that lets you interact with a map created by Mindjet MindManager.

What is a map?

Mind mapping is a powerful technique that allows you to make the most of your brainpower by creating maps that use color, lines, and images to capture and organize your ideas, information, and tasks.

A mind map is a diagram that presents ideas, information and tasks in a radial, graphical, non-linear manner.

Each node on the map is called a topic. A map can contain the following topic types:

One central topic

Main topics that branch off the central topic

Floating topics not connected to the main topic

Callout topics extending from another topic

Subtopics branching off main topics, floating topics or callouts

Topics are arranged into groupings called branches, in a hierarchy according to their importance.

Topics can be connected by relationships, and grouped or summarized with boundaries:
