What is Visual Understanding Environment?
The Visual Understanding Environment or VUE is a free, open source concept mapping application written in Java.
The VUE project is focused on creating flexible tools for managing and integrating digital resources in support of teaching, learning and research. VUE provides a flexible visual environment for structuring, presenting, and sharing digital information. Using VUE's concept mapping interface, faculty and students design semantic networks of digital resources drawn from digital libraries, local and remote file systems.
The project seems no longer developed. Last version, 3.3.0, released in October 2015, can be still downloaded from the official website and from GitHub.

- Upvoted a comment on Visual Understanding EnvironmentVUE does not have as many features and options as many other mapping programs (no preset icons and little hover effects and text pop-ups or lots of other things. VUE is basically just simpler for really good mapping layout. The tools look great, are responsive… This is one of those programs you just play with and in five minutes you understand everything. It isn't dense and frustrating. And somehow the results just look better, more clean and professional than most other options. For people wanting to just create simple mind-maps or concept-map charts or non-linear presentations, this is superb. Full rich-text formatting, import for images, programmed presentation paths… Great stuff! And ethical for being Free and Open Source! _[Edited by wolftune, August 26]_
