    A site-map is a list of links to different pages of a website.
    It has two main reasons:

    1) To be a guide for visitors
    to find their way around the website easily.

    2) To assist search engine spiders to crawl your website easily.

    Building sitemap.xml makes search engine spiders to crawl the website and report crawl errors if you made webmaster setup., giving access to navigate all other pages from a single page, and makes faster indexing in search engines!

    Sitemap is a blueprint of structure of a website. It contains all information about internal links and structure of a site.
    Sitemap can be either generated from HTML or XML.
    HTML sitemap is generated for easy navigation of visitors throughout the website. It increases the visibilty of a site.
    XML sitemap specifically deals with indexing, that is robots from Google and Yahoo.

    sitemap.html is made for users because its easy to understand by a visitor. And sitemap.xml is placed for crawlers mainly for Google-bot.
    Crawling is a process in which a spider goes to a web page and then index it(keeps it in the database) then spiders other web pages that are linked out to that page.
