Using mind maps as infographics

caffeineblendwiredinfographicMind maps can be very powerful infographics.
I was inspired by an infographic in Wired about the use of caffeine and wanted to create more overview in a mind map (I also added more data).

Compare the mind map to the infographic in Wired. What is your conclusion?

One Response to Using mind maps as infographics

    For months I have been arguing on my own blog — http://www.Hubaisms.com — that mind maps are a powerful tool for presenting information if the information is valid, reliable, and well-presented to general, as well as professional, audiences. I have gone so far as to suggest that such maps can be stand-alone communications that could replace traditional journal articles and as such might be peer-reviewed.

    I have yet to find a mind mapper on the Internet whose work is closer to what I consider to be ideal. I would contend that is far easier to understand the information in Dr Buskes’ mind map than it is to comprehend the traditional infographic published in Wired.

    This is an example of what the next 20 years of mind map development should look like.
