 Site Diagrams: Mapping an Information Space - Boxes and Arrows: The design behind the design
When we retrieve a file from our computer, we are browsing through an information space; when we use a search engine we are sifting through an information space; and when we visit a website we are moving through yet another information space.
By mapping this future development a site diagram can help predict long-term user interface needs and serves to guide interface design towards a more scalable layout (e.g., a layout that will easily accommodate the four new global navigation buttons that will be added over the span of six months).
The decision to minimize information about the file (such as the file name, the number of PDFs linked from the page, and any other relevant data) within the diagram is to reduce visual clutter.
