Internal cross links between lower level keywords are less common in mind maps and concept maps than they are in association maps, with the branching tree structure tending to take precedence. With concept and mind maps, the relationship of each word to the overarching theme remains paramount. In association maps, however, the link becomes the key, and, as stated, the process of deciding which type of link joins keywords together is a valuable part of ascertaining correct understanding. If you cant link two keywords effectively, you havent understood how they are related to one another! This pairing and linking process allows a jigsaw like approach to the development of the knowledge map, and enables a student always to be working from a point of understanding. Most interestingly, when used to develop a map for a new topic where one is not an expert, it is possible to identify the high level terms which will take precendence at the top of a concept map once an association map has been developed. This is because they are the ones with the most linkages. Development of an association map therefore gives a useful mechanism for allowing students to take on the expert role and develop their own concept maps, even when they are not fully confident in a subject. Drawing any of the three types of maps involves much more active learning than just using ready produced ones in my experience so this is a definite bonus. In summary, all mapping techniques provide a powerful method for organising key ideas within a topic or sub-topic. Mind mapping allows colourful creativity, concept mapping provides the confidence of professional correctness, and association mapping always lets you get started somewhere, but I have a sneaky suspicion, that the real power of visual mapping is the process your brain goes through when you develop those non-verbal links for yourself, so get a pencil and get started!
This article, a prequel to my forthcoming 101 Map Uses, offers 10 productive ways businesses can use wall maps. Too often, business professionals equate maps with the online digital variety that provide directions, the nearest Home Depot, and homes for sale, all from the comfort of a computer, PDA, or cell phone. Yet, millions of businesses use printed wall maps daily. Fortune 500 companies insist on using high quality printed maps in their day-to-day operations because there is simply no replacement for maps. While the digital map has its own uses, a well-designed printed map is by no means old school. To the contrary, wall maps keep up with the modern needs of business and are in high demand. Wall maps serve a multitude of purposes, the least of which is decorative eye candy, although this is a distinct use that has more value than you may think. Well get to that in a minute. Printed maps are handled in the office from everyone from the CEO, sales manager, executive assistant, accountant, and truck driver. This article is less for the professionals who already use maps, but for those who want to learn what the Fortune 500 know.
Promote your community Interactive maps are an ideal way for chambers of commerce, travel organizations, cities, towns, or other groups to promote their local business community. If you already have a printed map, adding an online version increases the visibility of your members and entices new businesses to join. As an organization, you might offer a basic listing on the map as a membership benefit. If you want to create a source of revenue for your group consider selling premium listings that display ads, photos, video, or links. Build an interactive map business These days people expect to find maps everywhere they go. Have you considered setting up your own interactive map business? Start with your town or community and produce a nice map image. Many artists and cartographers can draw one for you or you might be able to purchase a map of your town or region from one of the many map providers you can find online. Once you have created your map image, look for businesses that want to advertise on your map and then gather images and descriptions from them. Use an online mapping application to upload your map and make it interactive. Think about expanding to another community and before you know it you could have a profitable business creating maps in dozens of locations.
Whether you use pen and paper or the latest mind mapping software, the simple elegance of this technique has evolved into a powerful tool for copywriters, authors or anyone who needs to organise ideas or think more creatively. Have you ever spent hours writing meeting notes yet felt that the really important information remains buried deep within a mass of minutes? Or, maybe youve wrestled with complex information for a report, website or a newsletter. If that sounds familiar, the answer, as many other people have discovered, may lie in the simple but effective technique called mind mapping. Mind mapping in marketing, technical writing and PR Twenty years ago, before I became a copywriter based in Gloucestershire, England, I discovered mind mapping, got hooked and soon started using this simple tool in my marketing, technical writing and PR work. Since then, mind mapping has become an integral part of my working and personal life, completely changing the way I think, organise information and plan my copywriting. Whether you mind map on the back of an envelope or with mind mapping software such as Freemind, the technique could change your writing life too.
Laminated maps for the home or office have many distinct benefits for the condition of the map and also the appearance. Maps can be found in the home and in the office and they look visually appealing and part of the decor, but there is nothing worse than a map that suffers from general wear and tear, especially a map that is expensive or one that is not widely circulated. Generally speaking, maps and other items do suffer some kind of mishap, such as tearing and can lack stability if not properly protected. Re-usable ones are vital for those who heavily depend on them, no doubt important not just to keep using one map continuously, but also helps those who are on a budget and who choose not to spend money buying new maps only to have them ruined in the future by common tears, water and other dirt. Smeared ink is a big problem, especially if you only have one map to rely on, and there is no doubt anyone would prefer a more durable map.
Geographic maps are abstract representations of the world. It is, of course, this abstraction that makes them useful. Lewis Carroll made this point humorously in Sylvie and Bruno with his mention of a fictional map that had "the scale of a mile to the mile". A character notes some practical difficulties with this map and states that "we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well". This concept is elaborated in a one-paragraph story by Jorge Luis Borges, generally known in English as "On Exactitude in Science". Road maps are perhaps the most widely used maps today, and form a subset of navigational maps, which also include aeronautical and nautical charts, railroad network maps, and hiking and bicycling maps. In terms of quantity, the largest number of drawn map sheets is probably made up by local surveys, carried out by municipalities, utilities, tax assessors, emergency services providers, and other local agencies. Many national surveying projects have been carried out by the military, such as the British Ordnance Survey (now a civilian government agency internationally renowned for its comprehensively detailed work).
