  1. Actually and AFAIK, FreeMind can NOT make Concept Maps, but just MIND maps instead. They are both DIFFERENT kind of maps.

  2. mind mapping is as a star, concept mapping islike a network , you can drawit with Freemind but it’smore simple to use cmaptools (university of Florida) or Vue (tufts University)freeware
