Convert Mind Maps into UML Diagrams

In Astah Professional, you can convert Topics in a Mind Map into UML models (Class, UseCase, etc.) and vice versa.

To convert, all you need to do is drag a topic/model from the Structure Tree and drop it into a diagram. Hyperlinks can be added to link each model (Orignal and converted topic/model).

Example 1:

Draw a Mind Map for user requirements and create a UseCase Diagram by converting Mind Map Topics to UseCase models.
