Abstract

An increasingly large number of WWW sites are employing the use of "site maps" as navigational aids but relatively little is known about the benefits such devices bring to the user. This paper presents a review of current site map technologies from a usability perspective. The intention of this review is to provide a sounder basis for future research and development of WWW site maps tools by clarifying existing research and identifying important issues for the future. The paper provides researchers with a classification that may be used to not only categorise new work in relation to existing research but will assist in evaluating new site map designs in terms of suitability for task.
