Blueprints (site-maps)

“Blueprints show the relationships between pages and other content components, and can be used to portray organization, navigation, and labeling systems. They are often referred to as “sitemaps,” and do in fact have much in common with those supplementary navigation systems. Both the diagram and the navigation system display the “shape” of the information space in overview, functioning as a condensed map for site developers and users respectively.”
