Opening MMAP files

Have a problem opening a .MMAP file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what MMAP files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .MMAP file type?

The .mmap extension belongs to the Mindjet MindManager Document (MMAP) file type/format. MindManager is a paid mind-mapping software for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X by Mindjet, offering extensive capabilities for laying out brainstorm sessions, business meeting planning, generation of strategic outlooks, and similar business and personal tasks.

MindManager saves its documents as .mmap files. A .mmap document represents a complexly arranged interrelation of concepts or tasks, a formalized reflection of a 'mind map' in a person's head.

Internally, a .mmap file is a regular ZIP archive, containing a directory structure with the mind map's resource files. Those include the main "document.xml" file, a PNG preview image ("Preview.png"), and a set of XML files inside the "xsd" subfolder. Any embedded images or other objects are stored as .bin files under "bin."

MMAP files can be natively opened with MindManager or treated as normal ZIP archives. Because .mmap files are just ZIP archives, they can occasionally be served by web servers and saved by certain browsers as .zip files. In this case, the extension should be manually changed back to .mmap.
