Radial Mind Map: Essential and Fun Steps for CreationNancy
What is A Radial Mind Map?
A radial mind map, or sometimes also called as the radial tree, is a way of showing an expandable tree data framework. Such type is one of the most popular mind mapping diagrams. Normally, the dominant node of a radial mind map is at the center with connections to other sub-nodes. What’s more, a large set of nodes will be generated as the levels go up. In reality, most of the radial mind maps are in the form of Schematic radial tree pattern, which is the very basic layout structure of mind maps. Now let’s see how to create a hand-drawn style radial mind map with a mind mapping software for Windows.
Inserting a number of floating topics as branches to surround your main idea. This is for the preparation of setting connections among nodes.
Sorting and Naming Sub-topics
Normally in a Radial Mind Map, all the sub-topics should be structured based on a series of outward circles. Once settled down all the branches, you can input text for each of your sub-topic.
Making Connections between Nodes
This is the key part in terms of creating a radial mind map. You should try to keep the connectors curved between branches. Once done you can further label the level name, such as Level 1 or 2, in your mind map to differ the internal and external circles.
Picking up Your Symbols
If you wanna rich the content in your branches, a great choice is to drag and drop any built-in clip art or marks from the Clipart Library. Make sure the overall size of your inputted symbol is not so large that even squeeze the space out.
This is an option for you, but indeed a stylish diagram would attract more attention. Probably the easiest way to do so is to directly change the whole pattern of your work by justing moving your mouse around the list of the preset mind map theme. Besides, you can further improve the radial mind map by trying some different theme font, theme colors groups and so on.
Wanna Know the Feedback from Your Friends?
Now you have created a hand-drawn freestyle radial mind map. Thinking your work is perfect? Maybe your mates don’t think so. Simply save the radial mind map on your cloud account, share it on a series of SNS platforms, or export it in different formats for peer-view.
