Concept mapping tools -listing

Downloadable tools
VUE  (Visual Understanding Environment) – I use this extensively for personal organization, concept mapping, course design, teaching, flow charting.  Very easy to use with just enough but not too many shapes, colors. allows spring loaded edges between nodes.  Works on PC, Mac, Linux. Allows links to url, local documents. Output as VUE, image, html.   Free from Tufts University where they have a very nice set of on-line resources supporting VUE.

Eyeplorer EyePlorer isn’t a concept mapping tool in the sense usually used, but makes use of a cool technology to mine wikipedia for associations with search terms.  These are presented on a map which is a kind of concept map of what we might call the Wikipedia Commons.  See my review.
