Create the First Mind Map is Easy and Fun
What is Mind Mapping?
Mind mapping is a specific implementation method where you use a keyword to trigger related ideas, and then use the technique of graphics and text to show the relationship between the various levels of topics in a mutually subordinate hierarchy - establishing a memory connection between the keywords, images, colors, etc., and then to present all elements in a diagram to show your thoughts in a logical way.
