CmapTools provide an easy, intuitive, user-friendly way to create concept maps. Concept maps are a way of organizing information developed by Joseph Novak. They organize information in an intuitive, map-like way so that the visual representation of the information also helps to convey its meaning. The CmapTools software provides a way for users to create these maps, and also allows them to navigate, share, and even criticize them.

With CmapTools, you can create a concept map right on your personal computer. You can also upload it to CmapTools' CmapServers and distribute it anywhere on the internet. Users can link their Cmaps to Cmaps on other severs and conduct web searches for information that may be relevant to their concept map.

CmapTools is utilized by schools and other educational institutions as well as by government organizations, companies, and even individuals, to give you an idea of how diversely useful this concept-mapping software can be.
