Welcome to WisdomMaps: The Future of the Past!





WisdomMaps are a new take on the old idea of “mind maps”. These were invented in the Near East 2,000 years ago and popularized by Leonardo da Vinci as a way to unify knowledge. They work by emulating the thought processes of the human mind.

Because of their non-linear design, WisdomMaps go where linear thinking cannot. They show how information fits together to create meaning, in a multimedia presentation of pictures, videos, websites, and more. Images make it easy to retain information because they tell a story. And good story-telling is important with history.

WisdomMaps bring Leonardo’s brain-child into the 21st century, since it’s time that history finds a way that works for today’s visual learners.
