The results of my latest mind mapping software survey are now available for download. During the month of February 2007, just over 500 people participated in this online survey. This survey reveals how users got started using mind mapping software, and the biggest benefit they’re getting from it. It also sheds light on the software-related issues that users are currently struggling with, and the future functionality they would like to see in their mind mapping software.

Here are several highlights from this report:
- Two-thirds of respondents said the biggest benefit of mind mapping software is that it helps them to clarify their thinking.
- Roughly two-thirds of users of mind mapping software also create hand-drawn mind maps.
- Exporting maps to other formats and collaborating with coworkers are two areas where users of mind mapping software believe programs they’re using could be improved.
- A large number of respondents shared some truly fascinating comments about the functionality they would like to see in future iterations of their mind mapping software.
Thanks to those of you who participated in this important research project, as well as the bloggers who helped to promote it!
