Interactive mindmap

As promotional material for today’s view day at my course I made an interactive mindmap which was beamed onto one of the walls of the classroom of the ‘Next Web’ minor.

I got some really positive responses so I decided to post it here, click the screenshot below to check it out (navigate by clicking an element). Also feel free to check out the source-code.

Credits also go to Mark Shepherd, I used his very very awesome and super-easy to use SpringGraph component. I also used Maikel Sibbald his Sticky ToolTip for the description of every element, so thanks man.

On top of that I used the Flex component kit for Flash as to be able to create the visual effects of elements in Flash.

    Trying my hands at Flex.

    Got this problem…

    Description Resource Path Location Type
    1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: NodeRenderer. NodeRendererShell.as /MindMap/src/com/rubenswieringa/interactivemindmap line 13 Flex Problem

    Could you please let me know how to solve this.

    Thanks and Kind Regards,

    Did you make build path for flashcomponents.swc as well ?

  2. Are you planning to work on the ‘TODO: phased expansion’? That will be much appreciated. Thanks!

  3. hey Sam, no I’m afraid this was a project for school about 4 years ago, I have no plans to continue work on the mindmap code. feel free to have a go at it yourself though :)

  4. Hey Ruben!, A question about the colors. I noticed if there are more than 5 nodes the sixth node is color less. I believe it is controlled by
    public function setColor in NodeRendereBase.as. I changed this.nodeRenderer.setColor(color+1); to this.nodeRenderer.setColor(color-2);
    The number needs to be increased if there are more nodes.
    Is there something i can do better to control the colors? Thanks

  5. Hello I am a trainee teacher and also a postgraduate; I find the interactive mindmap absolutely fascinating and I wonder if you can talk about how to further this!

    Thanks I supplied my email to you.
