I recently discovered that an Inspiration Software reseller, MindServeGroup, is marketing an International Edition of Inspiration 8 that includes a mindmap-like "map view" that isn’t included in the standard educational version. Apparently, they are the exclusive sellers of this version, and also bundle with it a CD containing nearly 60 business templates to increase its appeal to executives. These templates include everything from meeting planning and writing a speech to project planning and website planning. Click here for a list of templates on the CD.
Map view is similar to the diagram view of Inspiration, except that primary topics are joined to the central topic with tapering, colored lines. For a screen shot that compares all 3 Inspiration views (diagram, map and outline), check out this Inspiration views page on the MindServeGroup website.
This looks like an impressive addition to an impressive visual mapping program. Why not check it out?
