Mindjet Creates Community for Visual Thinkers With 'Maps for That' Website

Site Provides Destination for User-Generated Sharing, Learning and Adoption of Productivity-Improving Techniques Through Visualizing Information

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2010) -  Mindjet®, the leading provider of software and cloud-based applications for visually organizing and managing information and ideas, announced today the launch of www.mapsforthat.com, a user-generated website and online community for publishing and sharing best practices for improving productivity through visual information maps. 

Created as a veritable 'YouTube for mind maps,' MapsforThat.com™ features user-generated maps and working templates for all matters or subjects -- from organizing business plans, keeping projects on track, and driving a more productive sales process to accomplishing a limitless number of business and personal objectives. MapsforThat.com provides access to map templates from Mindjet, as well as maps from real users, to demonstrate how mapping is driving real-world productivity.

"For businesses and individuals alike, the mapping community understands the tangible benefits of visualizing information," said Scott Raskin, CEO of Mindjet. "With MapsforThat.com, we're enabling the general knowledge worker to leverage the power of visual thinking and see how it can help them achieve more."

Targeted at both experienced mappers and those new to visual information maps, MapsforThat.com provides a peer-to-peer sharing platform so users can get ideas and inspiration from one another on how they are using visualization software to improve just about any task or job function.
