Choosing the right mapping format

There are basically three different mind mapping formats. You can choose between paper mapping, digital mapping and online mapping. While online mapping is actually just a variant of digital mapping, it offers a number of features and advantages that distinguish it from conventional digital mapping. That is why we’ve decided to treat it as a distinct format in this case.

Of course, you don’t actually have to settle for one format. Just because you choose to work with a digital solution doesn’t mean you can’t also draw paper mind maps when you’re not in front of your computer. The system is always the same and once you’ve come to appreciate its value, you’ll probably make use of it in all kinds of different situations. However, finding the right format for you and your individual needs and preferences is still important. Once you’ve found the right one, you can create a system based on it and that again will ensure a smooth overall workflow, help you to save time and increase your productivity.
