There are many 2D mind mapping packages out there, but for the heavy lifting you need 3D Topicscape Pro. 3D Topicscape is different. 3D Topicscape is better.

Users have made great use of Topicscape's ability to have tens of thousands of files in one database. A single topic may have many files attached (hundreds if you wish) and can still be handled easily. It therefore has greatly superior searching, compared with other mind mapping software that forces you to break maps down into more than one, for big projects. If you choose to place files under Topicscape's direct control, the Topicscape can be moved from PC to PC without breaking links.

  • Scan To Do lists with just a glance at a 3D landscape; zoom in and go back instantly; make live links to MS Outlook® tasks, contacts, emails, notes (in Pro).
  • Use the unique information organizer for project managers and mindmappers, and save money as you bask in the comfort of having full control of your information.
  • Do your research on the web while saving web pages in a queue. Just drop a page into the 3D landscape and carry on surfing: It's a real time saver.
  • If you mind map already, greatly expand your mindmapping with unlimited 3D worlds round which you can fly and zoom. Make your information even more visible . . . almost touchable.

Below are some stories of 3D Topicscape in action - the names have been changed, the Topicscapes have been simplified, and personal or sensitive material has been removed.
