The outline of a spider map


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]

“Spider diagram” has another, disputed meaning in mathematics – see the Wikipedia entry. The term “spidergram” also has an alternative meaning in geology.
