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.
