Site map

A site map, sitemap or, less commonly, site overview is the complete hierarchical and structured representation of all individual documents (websites) on an internet site or website (page structure). Ideally, the site map should also depict the hierarchical link structure of the pages. A site map is provided by a website operator in order to provide visitors with an overview of the scope and structure of the website. For very extensive websites, the site map may not be able to display all individual documents, and is limited to only providing an overview of the site’s hierarchical structure.
