What is iMapping?

Geschrieben von Heiko Haller am in english

iMapping is a visual tool that helps knowledge workers manage large amounts of information in a clear and structured way.

Topics, projects and fields of work can be visually structured in depth, without ever loosing overview.

iMaps are virtual pin-boards that provide visual space for your notes, files and ideas, so that every little thing has its place and is found without effort.

In varied areas, the iMapping Tool is used in many different ways: Managers gain a bigger picture of strategies, goals and meetings. Project managers use iMapping, to maintain an overview in larger projects. Researchers collect results, relate sources and put arguments in perspective. Students use iMapping to visually refine their learning matter for better retention.

iMapping unites the hierarchical order of mind-maps and the network structure of concept maps with the simplicity of a pin-board. And it does so in a way that allows handling thousands of objects with ease.

See your knowledge in the big picture!
