How about Inxight's Site Lens
<http://www.inxight.com/products_wb/site_lens/index.html>? I've only seen
the results, not tried to make one myself yet, but the hyperbolic display
applet is impressively responsive as you scan different areas of a large
site. A static map seems to have to represent increasing complexity with
smaller and smaller boxes, and/or by a kludgy complexity selector, as in
the example Gordon cited.
On the downside, I don't think Site Lens generates a textual outline of
the site. And for smaller projects, I'd like to have a site mapper that
generates textual outlines or graphical maps that don't require plugins or
Java to view.

creates a pictorial representation.
That rep should also be viewable as an outline as well as a structured
