    Looking for a specific kind of Mind Mapping software


    I need a specific type of application that can help me map out a special type of social network. I need something that can help me figure out connections between people, places and organizations. A real life example would be the whiteboard with newpaper clips, photos, stickers with names and that red thread between the needles you see in crime movies and police/CSI TV-series lol. Like kind of like the one in the ending on Mr. Robot season two when Darlene is all shocked as the camera fades towards Elliot.

    I've tried a few ones but i cant really find one that's good for this kind of project specifically...

    Labirynth, VYM and Freeplane... The TV-show example was the best one i could find. I need something simple just to illustrate and map out social/organizational connections and structures and how they are related to each other in order to better visualize it.

    Hi.

    The best ones I have used were:

    Tinderbox: The Tool For Notes

    TheBrain :: Mind Mapping Software, Brainstorming, GTD and Knowledgebase Software

    However, I used T on a Mac, and B on Windows. I don't know if they are available for *nix. The idea of them running in a VM is intriguing, however.

    Best wishes ... cheers, drl
