The Compendium tool and mapping method combines meeting facilitation, modelling and collaborative hypertext. It can be used to capture discussions and arguments in meetings, integrating perspectives from multiple stakeholders, and the construction of a collective memory resource. It is a collaborative project with international partners, and an active user community.
In March 2013 the codebase was formally taken over by the user/developer community coordinated through the Next Generation site http://compendiumng.org.
