I am preparing for something where I feel Freemind would be best suited to present the data.
I tried hunting around to see if there is any API I can use to programatically create mind maps. All I could find was documents on how to use the app.

If anyone has any information on generating mindmaps programatically, please do share. Thanks!

Aren't mindmaps used for brainstorming? Why would one programmatically create one? Unless one was attempting to help an AI to become self-aware...
I scratched the surface with mindmaps on the suggestion of a behavioral health associate a short time ago. I stumbled upon Freeplane and it appears to support scripting via Groovy and other languages. Would that get you what you want?
Since I haven't used mindmaps much, I can't really compare Freemind vs. Freeplane.
ETA: Freeplane is a fork of Freemind.

Thanks Joe, my system is named skynet

I will be writing the logic to define the hierarchy. I am trying to avoid reinventing the wheel for visual presentation, thus the focus on mindmaps.
Scripting sounds promising. I will check it out.
