placeholder

Spidergrams, spidergraphs, spider diagrams and spider maps are all terms used to describe a mindmap-like hierarchical diagram.

Their characteristic is that text on the nodes is horizontal and entries are typically long phrases.

Other uses of these terms[edit]

The time “spider diagram” also has a disputed meaning related to Euler or Venn diagrams in mathematics – see the Wikipedia entry

The term “spidergram” also has alternative meanings:

“Spidergrams are histogram like plots of the abundances of a set of elements in an analyzed sample relative to their abundance in some standard.” [1]
