The outline of a spider map

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

They have a central topic, their organization is purely hierarchical, text on the nodes is horizontal and entries are typically long phrases.

They differ from Buzan mind maps in not generally using color, not limiting nodes to one or two words, and having no emphasis on using images.
