This is an illustration of a semantic map. It depicts the many arts in the Philippines using a semantic map graphic. Semantic maps (sometimes known as graphic organizers) are word maps or webs. The goal of making a map is to graphically represent the meaning-based links between a word or phrase and a group of related words or concepts. Semantic maps assist students, particularly difficult students and those with impairments, in identifying, comprehending, and recalling the meaning of words read in the text. There are several technological solutions available to assist you in creating semantic maps (including thinking maps, mind maps, bubble maps, and concept maps). You might wish to look at the examples in EdrawMax to learn about the many types and applications of semantic maps.
