    Yes. XML sitemap is for search engine so that the search engine can crawl your site more easily while HTML site map is for the users so that they can see the whole images of your website ....

    when we submit html sitemap then search engine convert it in to xml sitemap. But when we submit xml sitemap then it's no need to convert .It is one of the fast way and time consuming way.

    I would recommend using both on your site. XML sitemaps are the clearest for the search engines, but html sitemaps are useful too as they provide internal links for your site's pages and also are of great use to the user, which Google likes.

    Because a Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL (when it was last updated, how often it usually changes, and how important it is, relative to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site.

    A sitemap actually helps search engines to crawl a site easily as a sitemap gives access to pages easily.

    Hi,

    The XML site map is a
    file that lists the URLs for a site. It allows webmasters and search marketers to include information about each URL such as when it was last updated, how often it changes, and how important it is in relation to other URLs in the site.

    The HTML site map can be easily integrated into the "look-and-feel" of a site.

    The function of XML and HTML sitemap are not same. XML sitemap is to be generated for Google as we need to submit Google sitemap is webmaster tool.
    HTML sitemap is for user, here user can view or get their link easily.

    XML sitemaps will crawl by google bot, but i think you should use both of them.
