Site map considerations

Questions to be resolved when drafting a site map.

Number of pages/screens

Your site map should indicate a number of pages (if a web site) or screens (if an app) that allows for clear organization of the content of the site. The number of pages/screens must also be an amount that you are comfortable creating wireframes for.

Breadth vs. depth

How many different sub-categories of content does your site have? How many levels deep does each category go?


Examples of site maps, showing the architecture of a web site or software application, including the main sections of content, as well as how many levels deep each kind of content is within the site or app.

  • Navigation components placed judiciously on each page/screen would allow a user to jump from one screen to the next in an intuitive fashion.
