BigPicture has garnered an in-depth and enthusiastic review from the Mind Mapping Software Blog, a leading source for news, trends and resources related to visual mapping. Chuck Frey, widely regarded as one of the leading experts on visual mapping and visual thinking, explored the software’s numerous features and says, “You’ll be very impressed.”
Frey investigates BigPicture’s basic diagram-building capabilities, noting that it has “a unique capability that leverages the inherent strengths of Excel” and that BigPicture enables “a fast way to build your diagram from scratch or to leverage existing data. Very cool! This is a capability that you won’t find in any dedicated mind mapping or diagramming program.”
Frey then delves into data mapping–‘where the real power is’–exploring the software’s ability to take reams of data and convert them into diagrams. “If your eyes glaze over when you look at a large number of columns and rows of data in Excel like I do, you’ll immediately appreciate this aspect of BigPicture,” Frey writes.
He is also impressed with BigPicture’s automated and elegant organizational chart functions: “This promises to be a big time-saver for human resources managers!” and its convenient slide-show mode: “quickly build presentations that have excellent continuity from one slide to the next.”
Frey concludes: “If you’re looking for an affordable, easy-to-use diagramming and mind mapping tool and you already use Excel, then you owe it to yourself to check out BigPicture. I think you’ll be very impressed with its excellent toolset and ease of use. This is backed up by a help file and videos that actually do an excellent job of explaining how to perform common tasks. That’s all too rare today!”
