What is a Capture Map?

Do any great business ideas, topics for your blog or even just interesting thoughts come to your mind and vanish before you could work on them? You probably wish you had noted them down, but didn’t know how to. A Capture Map is the tool that can solve your problem!

These maps don’t need a central idea, they just need your ideas! What you do once you have collected all your thoughts is up to you – converting them into an organic, speed or radial map for more organised work is always an option. Randomly collect your thoughts on our unlimited mind mapping canvas, and see your entire brain all at once.



Capture maps DNA


Capture and build: as your brilliant ideas spring to mind, never let any of them go to waste. Here lies a canvas which makes space for every thought to flourish.


Think instinctively: enjoy the freedom of not being tied to one central topic so that you can explore endless possibilities in any direction from any starting point.


Uncover hidden connections: without worrying about creating sequential thoughts, once all of your ideas are out of your head to see, you will be making connections galore.
