About site.map

I suddenly think that a sitemap is unnecessary because navagiation is suffice.
For example.
 <div class="clear hideSkiplink">
                <asp:Menu ID="NavigationMenu" runat="server" CssClass="menu" EnableViewState="false" IncludeStyleBlock="false" Orientation="Horizontal">
                    <Items>
                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/Default.aspx" Text="Home"/>
                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/About.aspx" Text="About"/>
                      </Items>
                </asp:Menu>
</div>

Open in new window

It is enough, why do I need sitemap?
Thanks for correcting my wrong thought.

Hi zhshqzyc,

       site.map file is only required when you want to bind menu items with site.map file with Sitemap datasource. As you might have already seen site.map file it is xml file which provides flexibility to keep out your navigation items from your aspx files so that it can shared between pages.

       In your above code you have declare menuitem in design time so you don't require site.map file in your case.
