site map



  • A table, diagram, or other visual representation which summarizes the contents or pages of a site. A site map should provide a direct and intuitive presentation which enables a user to go directly to the desired content, when said user does not wish to navigate throughout the site. Such a map is frequently organized hierarchically, and the need for a site map increases proportionally to the size and complexity of the information offered. Also spelled sitemap. Also called Web site map.
