This paper will look at ways in which generic 'diagramming/flowcharting' software can be used to support the research process. It will show how it can help with the organisation and processing of information. The uses described include, graphical representation of results of literature searches to show inter- relationships, flowcharting the research process to ensure clarity, organising contacts database graphically to enable faster access to data and identifying inter-relationships. The paper puts these uses in the context of a research project in to the use of the Internet and multimedia in schools. It concludes that this type of generic software, while not suitable for all, can offer those who like to visualise information many advantages over either paper or more usual graphics programs
