In answer to the following question....

Colin Eden did some work with mind maps through the
1980's. I believe he used some software that he called COPE.

I don't know where Colin is these days. I have a 1988 publication of
his, indicating that he was at the Strathclyde Business School,
University of Strathclyde, back then. Someone in the UK may know
more about both Colin Eden and COPE.

The publication I mention is:

Eden C. (1988) Cognitive mapping. European Journal of Operational
research, 36, 1-13.

In this publication is found a section titled "Cognitive maps and
the role of computers." I suspect there has been progress since
