A mind map consists of several topics organized under one theme. Each map contains one route topic as the central topic, and can contain up to 50 topics.
A topic is an individual component of the mind map. Topics are connected and organized in parent-child relationships. One topic is connected to a parent topic, and multiple topics can be kept as child topics. For example, the parent topic "galaxy" can have "solar system" as its child topic. In turn, "solar system" can have "earth" added as its child topic.
A topic can be visually displayed by a related diagram. In graph display, various operations are possible.
In each topic, several memos can be added as "notes." A note can be viewed when connecting to the topics of other users. Moreover, when a note is added, a notification is automatically sent. Notes by all users describing a connected topic can be viewed chronologically as "everyone's notes".
Data from Wikipedia or data automatically created as a registered topic are accumulated as keywords. Popular keywords are displayed in the upper left hand corner of the top page and are used as shared knowledge for Marici users. A keyword cannot be edited when a topic name exists in Wikipedia or when the URL is entered in the topic.
Related information is automatically displayed from topics made by other users that are connected to the keyword. If needed, such information can be inserted into one's own mind map.
