Publisher's Description

Supports thinking, sharing information and getting things done:

Freeplane is designed to be a program for mind mapping, knowledge management and project management.

Freeplane supports much more than classic static mind mapping. This is illustrated by the mind map Application areas on the right which summarizes the kind of tasks supported by Freeplane. Click on the hyperlink below the image to navigate the map. Read the node called Caption to learn how to navigate the map and unhide hidden information.

Freeplane is software which can edit LaTeX documents.

Freeplane features and highlights:
  • Note taking with freely positionable, unconnected nodes (post-it’s)
  • Ordering ideas (nodes) into a hierarchy connected by lines (edges)
  • Classifying nodes with metadata (attributes) and style types (system styles, user defined styles, level styles)
  • Grouping nodes with visual containers (clouds) and accolade (summary node)
  • Connecting nodes with dynamic links, free lines (connectors) and labels
  • Automatically styling nodes (with a bubble, color, edge type, etc.) according to hierarchical level and content (conditional styles, automatic edge color, level styles)
  • Structuring nodes in terms of content (text, scientific formula, calculation, icon, image and hyperlink) and presentation area (core, details, notes, attributes, images and tooltip)
  • Changing views by hiding content (folding branches, filtering, roll-up of details and hiding extensions in tooltip), finding, scrolling and navigating
  • Tasking with calendar and reminders
  • Password protecting of whole map and of individual nodes with DES encryption
