this is exaclty tthe same thing i was asking for a couple of weeks ago! (but by tyhe i got no answers) I. Software so.. visio is the thing, but what version of it, will the basic software fit my needs? we actually map these things in "flow" a diagraming software from 1994, but it does the job (draw) II. Documenting Architecture we work on this as a team we first define the clients and his goals then explain and map the funcionalities (maybe we could comepre some maps) we also do site maps showing hierarchy and navigation and schemes for every page, detailing buttons, paragraphs or worst problem is who do we prepere these documents for... we have tree audiences every time 1. our co's Directors (we're the newest section and they expect lots from us) 2. the clients (who is usually impressed with our proffesionalism) 3. production (who always complain that it lacks more information) my 2 cents -- -javier- http://mantruc.com http://evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt!
