Collaborative Mapping

I just discovered GroupMap, an online tool for collaborative mind-mapping that works across multiple devices – a simple idea that, if well executed, could be a winner. The app is browser based and works on Chrome, Safari and Safari for iPad.

I have been trying to work out possible applications and the immediate thing that comes to mind is that it could be used in conjunction with a video conferencing tool such as Collaborate, as a more lasting and effective activity than the whiteboard.
