Map concepts visually to make new meaning.
Concept maps are graphical tools that designers, engineers, and others professionals use to help them organize complex information in ways that produce new knowledge, or new ways of seeing that information. Concept maps often use geometric shapes and lines with labels to indicate causation or correlation. In this project, you will create a concept map on a topic that you want to understand better. You’ll polish your concept map for clarity and share your new understanding with others online.Lucidchart
