Freeplane is a software application for knowledge management that allows users to write down thoughts and organize information as is found on the mind, and to connect and share it; it can be described as a tool between an editor and a diagramming instrument.

The information is stored in mind mapping form, which means it is contained in mind maps. These include central topics, subtopics, and free topics, all of which can be formatted and linked, and also hidden, or they can include calculation formulas or hyperlinks. The topics include the content freely entered by the users. The application can be used to store separate information, and to connect, classify or structure content. The topics can be edited, styled, password protected, calendarized, and included in views. The mind maps can be further presented in styles similar to PowerPoint or Prezi.

It allows for the possibility of retrieving the content through Approximate Search. The functionalities provided can be extended with add-ons or by means of scripts, though it is not necessary to have extensive programming background to develop additional code. The users add information in an intuitive and free way, and it can then easily be connected and formatted into structured content. Existing mind maps and tutorials on how to use the application and how to create content are free to download from wiki pages in several languages. The application is open source; therefore, it is available for the public to use. It is created and supported by an online community, and forums are provided to discuss its features among all users.
