Visual Root: Collaborative and Creative Mind Mapping




Visual Root was a free web based tool launched in 2012 to create collaborative mind-maps made from videos, images, and text. 

Visual Root mind maps where like threads in a forum, one person starts a mind map root, and other people added node responses. The size of each element of the map was determined by users up or downvoting individual nodes.  




It was a very interesting brainstorming tool. You could see at a glance which subjects where the most popular and how they where connected. It was also useful for debates.  

In my opinion one of the key features of Visual Root was the possibility to export and download each map as a FreeMind file, then you could edit the map offline with a mind mapping software, given that most of the  mind mapping softwares are importing FreeMind maps.

Visual Root was also available as a Chrome App on the Chrome Web Store.

According to me, in terms of the best collaboration tools, I am using a software is called Mind Vector (One of my friends suggested me that). Which is cloud based, collaborative and having excellent features. It helps to create map for project planning, brainstorming, concep map making and more. http://goo.gl/yKR15d
