What software do you use for Issue and Dialogue Mapping?

We recommend using Compendium software for this type of mapping, as it allows you to extend, reuse and share IBIS maps far more easily than with hand-drawn maps or indented text IBIS (itIBIS) structures.

Compendium was initially developed in Verizon research labs as a next generation version of the QuestMap product.  QuestMap was the first commercially available software that supported the IBIS (Issue-Based Information System) methodology, as used in Dialogue Mapping.  Learning Compendium requires a bit of time investment, but we believe it is the best software currently available to do this kind of mapping.
