Concept maps are a great way to organize projects, distribute tasks or even illustrate a term paper with a colourful explanatory chart. And now, with CMapTools, they're easier than ever to create.

This application helps you to design any type of relational charts, concept maps and other types of diagrams. It works in a very intuitive way: double click on the screen to create a new element and right-click on it to customize its appearance.

CMapTools exports charts to a variety of formats (XMl, PDF, HTML...) and also enables to share them on the Internet, although we found the connection to CMap servers a bit slow.

Changes

  • Fixed the problem on the Mac that prevented the program to launch when the "Check for Updates" was executed before running CmapTools
  • Fixed the problem on the Mac where logs were truncated because of running under Java VM 1.6
  • Adds Greek as one of the languages supported by the CmapTools GUI
  • Fixes the problem when generating thumbnails under certain Linux distributions

The IHMC CmapTools program empowers users to construct, navigate, share and criticize knowledge models represented as concept maps.

It allows users to, among many other features:

  • construct their Cmaps in their personal computer
  • share them on servers (CmapServers) anywhere on the Internet
  • link their Cmaps to other Cmaps on servers
  • automatically create web pages of their concept maps on servers
  • edit their maps synchronously (at the same time) with other users
  • search the web for information relevant to a concept map
