The lotus-shaped map, made of 551,232 pieces, took 1,500 students more than 17 hours to create at the Phu Tho Indoor Stadium in District 10.
They students used the flower’s six petals to represent Vietnam’s people, geography, history, culture, education, and economy.
A Guinness representative, Carim Valerio, supervised the project and acknowledged the accomplishment, which broke the previous records for the most pieces -- 212,323 – set by Singaporeans in 2002 and for the largest mind map — 600 square meters -- set by Chinese in 2010.
A mind map, created over 30 years ago by British psychologist Prof Tony Buzan, is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, and other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea.
