A Mind Map is a visual tool that makes it easy to take notes during group discussions in a logical, structured manner. The way a Mind Map is constructed makes it easy for the viewer to easily recollect important points that were discussed during meetings or brainstorming sessions.

Well, a Mind Map is designed with a central idea with related information arranged around the core using branches. These branches can also have sub-branches. It is important to use only two to three words at the most to label any element in a Mind Map. These words should be strong and easy to recollect, instantly defining the concept so that a viewer is able to recall information later with ease.
Each step should also have a maximum of seven points, which is the most information the human mind can hold without overload. Use images wherever possible since it is easier to remember information if you visually illustrate them.
