At this phase of the website development cycle, the developer creates the data that allows a customer to judge what the entire site will look like.

Based on the information that was gathered together in the previous step, the sitemap is created.

The sitemap should describe the relations between the main areas of your website.

Sometimes, before you start to code or even work on a design, there’s a necessity to get approval from a customer that everything looks fine so you can begin the next phase of developing. In this case, a wireframe or mock-up is created.
