WikiMindMap is a tool to browse Wiki content easily and efficiently, inspired by the mindmap technique.
Wiki pages in large public wiki’s, such as wikipedia, have become rich and complex documents. Thus, it is not always straight forward to find the information you are really looking for. This tool aims to support users to get a good structured and easy understandable overview of the topic you are looking for.
First month of development for this tool – which is nice. I particularly like visual techniques for presenting information to students as part of demonstrating research techniques. Several languages available – be sure to choose the right one for your needs. This visual technique allows you to drill down and refine your ideas as you go.
Two searches for Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 provided the following really interesting entry screens – which pick up the key launch points for investigation on each of these two broad topics. It’s also possible to hyperlink these screen shots directly to the search query – once again this is useful when presenting information to students and for pointing them to a specific search focus for research and learning.
