Freemind location

Wed, 21 Mar 2012

I blogged on Freemind, the open source mind mapping software, a few days ago, but wanted to add on to that post. The development team are reaching a v1.0 release candidate (currently in Beta) and have incorporated the ability to add location to nodes on your mind map. Tools -> Map (or Ctrl-Alt-M) brings up the Map window which loads OSM data of Europe. Type in the "Search Location" bar the place you want to add and hit enter. The location pointer is centred at this location. You can now:

  • zoom in to look at this in more detail.
  • move the point - or rather, single-click anywhere in the new window to place the pointer somewhere else
  • click Actions -> Place Selected Nodes to add the location to you node
  • double-click to place a new node in your mind map at that location
All very useful and interesting functions and good to see OSM integrating and enabling such a feature. It will be interesting to see how this develops.
