Both organic and speed mind maps can be used to explore and capture your ideas on any given topic or project. However, organic mind maps use curved branches to replicate your natural thinking processes, much like that of the hand-drawn mind map. Organic mind maps allow you to adjust the size and shape your branches, giving you more creative control over the design of your mind map.
Speed Maps provide a more structured layout for your mind map, with 4 different set styles for you to choose from, including Box Map, Direction Map, Line Map and Gradient Map. This view is ideal for when you want to quickly capture ideas in a pre-set format.
