What they say[edit]

“Crystal Mapping, like mind mapping, concept mapping and other graphical organisers and brainstorming tools arranges information in a joined up visual context to help improve thinking, learning, understanding and knowledge. Crystal Maps use circles, the universal symbol of unity, rather than nodes and lines to connect ideas. Consequently your maps are more structured and instinctively seen as forming a ‘whole that is greater than the sum of its parts’. This helps you plan, communicate and present insights and share and collaborate on projects because people can see ‘the bigger picture’ context. This new approach is a step on the road to new and better ways of managing projects and information complexity through visual means
