The importance of the conceptual maps' development and of the software instruments that set them up in phase of composition and utilization, in the context of e-learning, derives evidently from their connection with the thematic of the knowledge's onthologic structuring: the representation of the elements and relations that constitute an onthological frame has to be founded on the graphs' theory, linking the elements to the nodes and the relations to arcs, in relation to the rules defined from J.Novak (1984).. The conceptual maps, however, are not configurable simply as products of the concept's evolution of contents' indexing, from which they differ structurally because they are not limited to the representation only of the hierarchical relations, since their role is dilated from the knowledge's organizational function to the transmissional function, assuming a specific task into the explicitness of the cognitive context that involves an intrinsic value about didactics, a various and ulterior task regarding the navigation support. In the relationship between knowledge's organized aggregation and representation, moreover, it's evident the requirement to automate the reconstruction of conceptual maps, using algorithmic models, owing to simplify the modalities of structural modification through a direct connection with information integrated in a database management system, and in the meantime to be able to use multiple shapes of representation and observation corners.
