A concept map visualizes the relationship between ideas by organizing those ideas within a diagram, using arrows or lines showing their relationship to one another.
Concept maps are useful for product, marketing, and design teams to better distill and understand complex topics and insights, helping collaborators see how each concept relates to each other.
What is a concept map?

What does a concept map do?
Concept maps can be used by most anyone who is trying to understand relationships from one idea to another.
