    image-centered

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "image-centered" means in the following sentence:

    A mind map is an image-centered diagram which represents connections between individual portions of information.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: image-centered

    so "image-centered" means that there is a picture in the centre?

    Re: image-centered

    In this case, yes. It normally refers to a more metaphorical sort of 'image', as in 'Madonna is an image-centred performer'.

    The people who sell the idea of mind maps (there are training courses, accredited instructors - all that stuff [and, of course, money changing hands ]) are very insistent that a mind map should always have a picture in the middle.

    I've always hated mind maps.
