Interesting to see someone else running into concept maps - that tool crossed my path a few weeks ago.

I had a hard time getting really good verbs when drawing one, and ended up with "is a kind of" and "exemplifies" way too often.

I've had the Cmap software for quite some time. When I first downloaded it I made a very complex concept map and then never did anything with it or the software.

But for this, mind mapping would not suffice. Mind mapping is more categorical - putting things into place. It's an organizational tool. But concept maps seemed more of a story telling tool simply because of the verbs.

The concepts are the nodes and the verbs are the connectors. The concepts are neighborhoods and the verbs are the arterials.
