Using sitemaps in SEO has many benefits,not only easier navigation and its better visibility by search engines.XML sitemaps will contain many urls, where RSS/Atom feeds will only contain a certain limited set of new or recently changed urls.

Sitemap is a list of files that give hints to the search engines on how they can crawl your website.

A sitemap helps in locating all the necessary files that are hidden and not accessible by search engine bots.

There are two popular versions of a site map.
HTML sitemap (written in Hypertext Markup Language)
XML sitemap (written in Extensible Markup Language)

An XML Sitemap is a structured format that a user doesn't need to see, but it tells the search engine about the pages in a site, their relative importance to each other, and how often they are updated. This sitemap is for search engines to access all your site's links.

XML is basically a language that store information about an object in organized or pre-defined format.

XML Sitemaps can have two types.

Index Sitemap (how many URL sitemaps a website have)
URL Sitemap (contain final information of URLs on webpage)

HTML sitemaps are designed for the user to help them find content on the page, and don't need to include each and every subpage. This helps visitors and search engine bots find pages on the site. It is a one of the page of your website which has all the links that are listed in your website in a hierarchy manner.

These sitemaps are primarily for users to assist them to find their desired item on website or to explore a website easily.

XML sitemaps are further divided into 3 different categories.

Sitemaps for webpages (commonly known as xml sitemap in community)
Image sitemaps (details of images and their URLs on website)
Video sitemaps (what webpages have videos embedded in them and their details)

Sitemap Importance:
Receiving a more complete indexation of your website
Controlling crawl path priority
Help spot problems or raise trouble flags
