Mapuccino is a Java applet or small program that can show a visual map of how a Web site is organized. For example, you may want a map view of your own site. Mapuccino will quickly assess your Web files and create map views of it that you can view and, if you wish, save. Mapuccino let you alternate between a horizontal map view, a vertical map view, a regular Table of Contents (that looks like a Windows directory/file hierarchy), and a goldfish view. Since the nodes on the map represent individual HTML pages, they are also hyperlink to the pages, enabling you to use the map as a way to navigate or explore a site.
Using Mapuccino, you can also select a site and specify a map of just that part of the site that meets your information criteria. Mapuccino was developed by IBM's Haifa Research Lab and is currently a laboratory demonstration. You can see the demonstration at IBM's Web site.
