Eliminates scrolling: The
edges of large maps
disappear over 'the
horizon'

Only useful for
developers

This is not a standalone mapping application, but open source Java code for
developers who want to build software that can handle very large hierarchical
maps. This could appear on a web page or be used in software to run on a PC.
Hypergraph deals with the problem of organizing a lot of information in a mind
map by, effectively, placing the map on a sphere, and allowing the user to
make any topic the central one.
There is a small sample of the appearance below (two views), but to get some
idea of what it can do and how it looks, see this example:
http://mfellmann.net/wi/ and try clicking on nodes to see the dynamic nature
and changing focus of the map produced.

Platforms supported

Windows
Mac OS X
Linux

Features

Online maps made with software including this can be embedded in blogs and other web
pages, where they will be interactive (but not editable)
