Making Site Diagrams

One of the first things I do when tasked with developing a web site is pull out a sheet of paper and create a simple site diagram to make sure I account for all the content that I needs to be included.

Since I usually both design and code sites myself, the site diagram is very elementary and doesn’t get seen by anyone other than me. But recently when working with two other developers I found it useful to create something a little more detailed.

After a little searching, I found this Box and Arrows posting titled Site Diagrams: Mapping an Information Space useful. The author, Jason Withrow, provides some great guidelines for creating diagrams and well worth a read.
