What is a bookmap

A bookmap is a specialization of a DITA map and is meant to be used when you intend to publish your documents in a book format. It contains structure and metadata, but no content. It is especially designed to create output in book-style formation and therefore includes the following major structures:

  • title
  • bookmeta (owners, authors, publishing data,…)
  • front matter (acknowledgements, definitions, abbrevations,…)
  • chapters and parts
  • appendix topics
  • back matter (index, notices, lists,…)
  • relationship tables
