  Description     : Visual Understanding Environment (VUE) concept and content mapping application

>From their web site:

At its core, the Visual Understanding Environment (VUE) is a concept and
content mapping application, developed to support teaching, learning and
research and for anyone who needs to organize, contextualize, and access
digital information. Using a simple set of tools and a basic visual grammar
consisting of nodes and links, faculty and students can map relationships
between concepts, ideas and digital content.

Sharing and presenting information are important aspects of academic
work. VUE’s pathways feature allows presenters to create annotated trails
through their maps, which become expert guided walk-throughs of the
information. The pathways feature also provides a “slide view” of the
information on the map. The power of VUE’s slide mode is the ability for
presenters to focus on content (slide view) while preserving the information’s
context (map view), by way of a single toggle between the two views.

VUE also provides supports for in-depth analysis of maps, with the ability to
merge maps and export connectivity matrices to import in statistical
packages. VUE also provide tools to apply semantic meaning to the maps, by way
of ontologies and metadata schemas.

VUE can be used by anyone interested in visually structuring digital content,
whether in support of teaching difficult to understand concepts or more
generally, a tool for organizing personal digital resources.
