Produce Map

Your map is generated once all pages have been scanned.

Visual sitemaps

PowerMapper draws maps in a range of useful and attractive styles using thumbnails of each page.

Professional Edition also exports Google XML sitemaps and Excel CSVs.

Electrum Map Style

This thumbnail sitemap shows miniature snapshots (thumbnails) of each web page organized hierarchically. The map can be re-centered on a new page by drilling down using the [+] symbols.

Skyscraper Map Style

This sitemap displays blocks for each page on the site, with the taller blocks representing pages closest to the home page. It's useful for detecting site structures where most of the content clusters in one or two sections of the site.

Page Cloud Map Style

This sitemap displays website structure by arranging pages in clusters centered around the parent page. The map can be re-centered on a new page by drilling down using the [+] symbols.

Page Cloud
Page Stack Map Style

This sitemap displays a graphical button for each page on the site. You can customize the map with your own icons.

Create site maps cost effectively

Creating a site map manually takes hours or days, even for medium size sites. PowerMapper creates site maps automatically with a single click. Ballpark costs to manually create a site map are:

  • 3 minutes per page to create and layout a box for each page in a drawing package then copy-and-paste the page title or url
  • Total Effort: 50 hours to create a map of a 1,000 page site (3 minutes x 1,000 pages)
  • Total Cost: $2,500 at $50 per hour (50 hours x $50)

PowerMapper can build a better site map in under 5 minutes for a small fraction of the cost.
