My understanding is that mindmaps are incapable of representing recursive linkages. For example, I am interested in visual sitemaps, basically mindmaps of websites; however, mindmaps are apparently not capable of representing the recursive links. Therefore, the alternative would be to parse website directory trees into mindmaps; but, since standard XML sitemaps do not include webpage titles, this would then require the website to be crawled in order to retrieve all of the page titles for insertion into the visual sitemap or mindmap. Further, MindManager (MM) format includes nested ZIP files, which make conversions that much more onerous. I can refer you to my Meta Guide webpage, “Mindmap Conversion” .
