At the Intersection between Mind Mapping and Infographics



At the intersection between Mind Mapping and Infographics, this amazing interactive mindmap published by the MontrĂ©al Journal was developed using data from the 2011-2012 Quebec Government's Budget. 
Despite its complexity it's easy to zoom in and discover many details thanks to a zoom button, moreover  there are several clickable items that open a text box.


Infographics depict visually both data as facts. As the mind map does, they invite to navigation and discovery and stimulates attention while simplifying information. They are often nonlinear.


Recently I created for a company based in Madrid, as you can discover through a detail of the map above or the overview below, which also tends to the intersection between Mind Mapping and Infographics. The subject of this map is the concept of sustainable responsibility, an evolution and hybridization between corporate social responsibility and sustainable development. 

I introduced chronological markers at the bottom of the map and floating elements connected by lines, not branches. The software I used was NovaMind 5 . 


You can click on the map below to see the full size version.

An Impressive Map by Digimind

On the  Digimind Website , you can download (here) as PDF this incredible  map  about internet sources in the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare sectors.

Hundreds of sources are visually organized. I believe that the best way to read it is to use a big poster.

Imagine....

Thirty-eight years ago, a fourteen year old boy named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Montreal room .  The short film, I Met the Walrus, based on a recording of their conversations, was nominated for an Oscar for "best animated short" at the 2008 Academy Awards, and won "Best Animated" at the Manhattan Short Film Festival.
Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation. Raskin marries traditional pen sketches by James Braithwaite with digital illustration by Alex Kurina.

Connectivism : a learning theory for the digital age.

Mindmap by George Siemens depicting connectivism - www.connectivism.ca - source: www.elearnspace.org/media/ProfessionalDevelopment/player....

Principles of Connectivism

Siemens (2004) identifies eight core principles of Connectivism:

  • Learning and knowledge rests in diversity of opinions.
  • Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources.
  • Learning may reside in non-human appliances.
  • Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known.
  • Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning.
  • Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill.
  • Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities.
  • Decision-making is itself a learning process. Choosing what to learn and the meaning of incoming information is seen through the lens of a shifting reality. While there is a right answer now, it may be wrong tomorrow due to alterations in the information climate affecting the decision.
