Please share your techniques If you have ever been working on a design or redesign of a bigger website or an app that has a complex Information Architecture. While drafting it all manually (and updating frequently as the website is "alive" and changing constantly), the whole process is extremely time-consuming and dull. It also generates simple mistakes. It's easy to overlook small changes.

Is there any tool available that maps a site's structure automatically and display it in a visually satisfying and understandable way? (graphs)

Are you always drafting IA manually when investigating a product's structure?

I have tried scraping websites with tools for developers but the output lists still have to be converted into graphs manually.

    Hi @moka, since this is a Q&A site, it will be great if you can reframe your question to be more specific. Your question seems opinion based. Some ways to improve the question would be - give an example of your IA - and describe some problems you run into etc. Dec 17, 2020 at 2:15
  • Hi@harshikerfuffle I cannot share the IA as I cannot disclose the client's information. I am not sure what is unclear about my questions or problem description. Please clarify.
