A mind map is a graphical representation of ideas or topics in a radial, non-linear manner. Mind mapping diagrams are used to visualize, organize, and classify ideas, making them perfect for study aids, organizing information, problem solving, writing and making decisions. The term "mind map" was first popularized by British popular psychology author and television personality Tony Buzan. Since then, mind mapping was widely used in the area of both business and education. In business field, mind mapping helps the organization to brainstorm products, set strategy, plan projects, and more. In education field, mind mapping helps students to retain information through interactive learning.
