How can I turn notes into something useful?

I've been noting down ideas for a potential novel for over a year. Problem is, I now have so many that it's tough to keep track of it all. How can I organise and consolidate them into something workable?

These notes cover every possible aspect of the project, from content to stylistics and observations. Should I categorise them, and if so, how would I go about it/what categories would I use? I want to be left with something functional and useful so that I can incorporate the ideas as smoothly as possible. Any suggestions of how you have tackled large quantities of notes would be incredibly useful!
