A mind map is often created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added. Major categories radiate from a central node, and lesser categories are sub-branches of larger branches. Categories can represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items related to a central key word or idea.

An example of a rough mind map is illustrated. Mind maps are considered to be a type of spider diagram. A similar concept in the 1970s was "idea sun bursting".
