Mapuccino is opening up new ways to manage vast amounts of information on the Web, which in turn could increase the usefulness of Internet technology. Mapuccino maps can be used in a variety of ways to enhance personal use of the Web and to improve Web site management. For example, Mapuccino lets users create personalized maps of favorite Web sites for convenient browsing and quick reference. After specifying topics of interest, Mapuccino uses this information as search criteria when constructing site maps.  Mapuccino also employs an advanced information retrieval technology developed by IBM researchers. To enrich the maps, pages directly associated with the search criteria are displayed along with "sibling" pages, which are pages that appear closely related based on the structure of the Web site.
