The new Diagram Wizard and Map Wizard let you easily create diagrams and maps, such as the following diagram:

 

BDAC

 

labelname
Ahumerus
Bpelvis
Culna and radius
Dfemur
memorize

Choose your wizard

Just click the "create page" link (top of page) and select the wizard you want (from the dropdown next to the "Create" button).

Map Wizard

Use the Map Wizard to simply type in names of places whose locations you want to memorize. Example:

 

 

LabelAnswer
AMilan
BVenice
CRome
DNaples
memorize

 

You can type in the names of cities, countries, lakes, well-known landmarks, etc.. If what you type doesn't show up try using the Diagram Wizard instead, to manually choose the locations.

Diagram Wizard

Use the Diagram Wizard to select an image and then click to add labels to memorize. You can use any image on the web (though first make sure the site having the image allows this).

 

example page created by map wizard: US States Map

 

It's perfect for: anatomy, memorizing people in a picture, buildings on the map where you'll have meetings or classes, and other cases where memorizing parts of an image is helpful.

 

You can also select a map as the background, when you want to memorize local or non-standard places on a map (otherwise, the Map Wizard is preferable).

Preview and further editing

As with all wizards, you can use the preview at the bottom to try memorizing while still on the wizard screen.

 

After you save the page, you can edit the page using the flexible wiki text. This will let you edit maps and diagrams, add paragraphs, and add more tables and diagrams (and anything else) to the page (using wiki text).
