I thought I would post about this interesting tool I found. I think it may be a nice and simple means of organizing information in a visual way using a graph along with accompanying notes for each node in the graph. It is based on DeepaMehta, but is much simpler. It has an interactive visual graph web export feature you can publish to a website page.

http://x28hd.de/tool

To note, the same files are listed with .zip extension. I tried unzipping them, but was unable to import them into the application. I renamed the ‘.zip’ extension to ‘.xml’ without unzipping the downloaded sample file, and it imported successfully into the app.

One last note, When you first open the java application it has a window to import a list of nodes. You can forgo the importing of data, or a file, and start with a blank canvas and edit the graph manually, if you wish… I click on the spacebar once and then the ‘continue’ button will no longer be greyed out. Just remember to save your work. You can create a new graph this way manually entering the data. into the graphical interface. ... there is a right click menu with options… a help window option in the menu with instructions for the application.

Note, the author of this tool has a good collection of demo files and article as to why he created this tool. It is Interesting…

Interesting.  Reminds me of Cmap or VUE.

Thanks for that, it does look interesting. Are there any other options to export? I’d prefer not to have to individually copy and paste the text from a large number of nodes (when wanting to move the data elsewhere), and it would be nice to capture the meta info about the relationships between them as well.

Hello Dr. Andus, nice to hear from you…

I don’t know much about the app yet, as I havn’t used it much, just experimented and loaded some of the samples. I like it’s simplicity and visual nature, though.

It really caught my attention. The ‘blogpost’ linked to on the page, under ‘Theory’. gives a nice explanation about the reason for it’s development. Is quite interesting.

Ok, just writing to reply, sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

Just to comment, I like to share what I find, as I’ve learned a lot from this forum from many years past. Am trying to contribute a little… sharing about what I find.
