Why Sitemaps and Website Navigation Plans Matter

Working with designers, developers, clients and other stakeholders in designing a website can be a challenge, especially when working with external vendors. Its challenging enough to grok your client’s exact requirements and you want to make sure these requirements are clearly understood by the entire project team. As part of a web design project, its essential to develop a sitemap or website navigation plan in order to clearly communicate the intent and scope of your website to stakeholders and the project team.

Web site navigation plans should include all the web pages within your site and preferably be easy to navigate, update and share. But an ideal navigation plan, should allow you to easily link your sitemap to your webpage mockups – so clients can visualize and explore the entire website design even before a single line of HTML code is written.
