During the last decade, the number and variety of visual thinking tools has grown steadily. Thanks to the global pandemic permanently altering work patterns, it has exploded during the last several years. It’s hard to keep up with all of the new tools and apps that seem to pop up every month.
Until now, no one has mapped out the ecosystem of visual thinking, creation and collaboration tools. So I created the world’s first Visual Thinking Tools Roadmap. It contains over 100 tools in 15 categories:
- Mind mapping software (desktop)
- Mind mapping software (web-based)
- Mind mapping apps (virtual reality)
- Concept mapping
- Visual whiteboard
- Visual note-taking
- Visual knowledge management
- Online graphics
- Visual writing and documentation
- Data visualization
- Graphic videos
Why is this important? Because different types of projects can benefit from different types of visual thinking tools. A roadmap gives you a snapshot of all of the possible solutions within each software category, making it easier to conduct research on them.
