WikiNodes Visual Root: Collaborative and Creative Mind Mapping You can check out this mind map here Visual Root is a free web based tool to create collaborative mind-maps made from videos, images, and text. Visual Root mind maps are like threads in a forum, one person starts a mind map root, and other people add node responses. It is a very interesting brainstorming tool. In my opinion one of the key features of Visual Root is the possibility to export and download each map as a FreeMind file, then you can edit the map offline with a mind mapping software, given that most of the mind mapping softwares are importing FreeMind maps.
