Visualize and expand on ideas with our mind map maker

  • Mind mapping features that inspire creativity and innovation

    Using a mind mapping software is one of the best ways to get information onto the page and build out your ideas in creative and innovative ways. A mind map is ideal for breaking large concepts into specific ideas and uncovering new ways of thinking. Our mind map maker offers an unlimited canvas for you and your collaborators to work on unlimited ideas at once. Get started with a mind map template, and use freehand drawing to jot down additional notes and connect concepts. 

  • A mind map creator to collaborate with your teams directly

    Branch out and invite your team to contribute their ideas to your mind map. Our mind map software keeps your team connected with comments, @mentions, and in-editor chat, all used to solicit feedback and draw attention where it’s needed. You can even focus your group’s attention on a specific area of the board and follow individual collaborators to see all of their updates in real time. 

  • Add key notes and directions to your mind map in one location

    Our mind map generator has the Note Panel where you can add bullet points and checkboxes, set the agenda, and provide important context. With your Note Panel, you can easily brainstorm with your team and keep your ideas organized in a way that makes sense for your team. Keep your meeting notes together, list tasks, and document action items without the hassle of creating a separate document.

  • Create, edit, and share mind maps effortlessly in popular apps

    With our powerful integrations, you can access, edit, share, and even create a new mind map online using your favorite apps. Use our Slack integration to insert a board in your team’s Slack channel or start a new board directly from Slack. Our Google Drive integration lets you share your board and maintain control with various access permissions. Lucidspark integrates seamlessly with Lucidchart, so you can import and export your mind map from one application to another without losing your work. 

How to brainstorm ideas with our mind map creator

  1. Add your central theme or idea to the center of your mind map

    Drag a single shape onto your board and label it using your central idea. Or, get started quickly with our easy-to-use mind map template.

  2. Add parent branches from your central idea to represent key subtopics within your mind map

    Divide your central topic into 3 to 5 main subtopics. Double-click to easily add shapes to your board, then drag a line from your subtopic to your central theme to connect them.

  3. Add child branches to flesh out subtopics with more specific items

    Your child branches will explore each subtopic more in depth. Add lines to each parent branch and label them with key words or phrases to keep your design simple and effective.

  4. Add colors, doodles, or images to help you retain and organize info

    Apply colors to different shapes and branches to differentiate between subtopics. You can also add images to provide context for certain ideas and customize your mind map further.

  5. Invite others to collaborate on your mind map in Lucidspark

    Uncover new ideas by inviting others to add to your mind map. Easily share your mind map and give collaborators custom permissions to review, comment on, and add to your map.

A demo of a sample Lucidspark brainstorming board is shown, with lots of active participation from the four participants across the entire board. Next, a rapid series of close ups demonstrating some Lucidspark features: Writing on a sticky note, drawing a circle around an idea, starting a 30-second timer, crossing an item off an agenda, adding emoji reactions to a sticky note, and sharing a board with collaborators in the share settings. The video then continues to demo features in line with the narrator's audio for the remainder of the video. The video ends with the Lucidspark logo and tagline Where ideas ignite.
