Semantik – mind-mapping application for KDE

Semantik (previously known as Kdissert) is a mindmapping-like tool to help students to produce complicated documents very quickly and efficiently, including presentations, dissertations, thesis, reports.

A mindmap is a multicolored and image centered radial diagram that represents semantic or other connections between portions of learned material. For example, it can graphically illustrate the structure of a thesis outline, a project plan, or the government institutions in a state. Mindmaps have many applications in personal, family, educational, and business situations. Possibilities include note-taking, brainstorming, summarizing, revising and general clarifying of thoughts.

Though this application shares some similarities with general-purpose mindmapping tools like FreeMind or View Your Mind, the primary aim of Semantik is to create general-purpose documents, not mindmaps.

Features include:

  • Easy to user interface.
  • A tree view with integrated search.
  • Export in several common formats.
  • Add text and attachments for each item.
  • Add diagrams.
  • Supports pictures.
  • Features several document generators: LaTeX reports, LaTex slides (based on Prosper and Beamer), OpenOffice.org documents, HTML, and plain text.
