Job Description for Information Architect

Information architects are the professionals in software - and, especially, web application and development - who help refine and improve the user experience (UX in industry terms). The information architect works to create site maps and interface functionality that improve the interface and user interaction. A primary piece of an information architect's job is the categorization of data. Before the architect can best point users to the data they seek, he or she needs to know how or why the user is seeking that information in the first place. The information architect then uses that base categorization model to create the site structure of a website or the interface for an information application.
