"This would be for advanced users, but it would be great to be able to access a map just like you can a mySQL database. Then it could be used as a content database for things like a Wordpress website or an iPhone app, but then I'd also have the map itself to see the data in a visual format as the database grows."

For anyone interested in being able to create Topic libraries in a database such as MySQL/MS SQL/MS Access you could look at Topic Tracker.

Topic Tracer lets you create a database and tables that can contain Topic information from multiple map sources. You and other users with Topic Tracker installed can then drag Topics from the Topic Tracker database into Maps to create dashboards or simple share specific Topic level Map information.

Topic changes made to the source Topic can then be pushed to the database and Maps where those Topics are being "tracked" can then be updated to reflect the changes/updates.

You can also set up Topics so they can be synchronized both ways between the Maps and you can select the attributes to "track" as well as restrict access to certain Topics and/or their Sub-Topics with a simple password access.

Topic Tracker is available for MindManager 8, 9, 2012, 11, and 14 and is available in English, French, German and Dutch language.

You can find out more about Topic Tracker on our website.
