Making mind maps . . . from the ground up

1 comment

The term “mind map” is used in different ways. “How to make a mind map” talks about some of these ways, and the many reasons for mind mapping. Its aim is to help you choose what’s right for you next time you want to make a map. You’ll find step by step instructions and a wide range of examples.

Depending on what you need, “How to make a Buzan-style mind map” may be useful – it focuses on the style popularized by Tony Buzan when he coined the term in the 1970s. That’s a basic article, and is extended with my own commentary where I share some of my 30+ years of mapping experience in “Buzan’s mind map guidelines in practical use“.


  1. I’m a student at the university of York studying mathematics and I have been using mind maps to solve problems, brainstorm ideas, make presentations and to write essays. I put my general Idea in the middle of the page and draw colorful branches and write a single word on each branch. It’s extremely useful and helps me see connections that would be very difficult to see without a mind map, I strongly recommend it.
