Create a highlevel chart. Use icons to represent a logical groups. label
these groups with a group name and they should fit on one page. For
example...let's say you are charting a network that is spread out over 7
cities, like ours is. Create a flow at the city level. Then create a chart
for each of the 7 group where you describe it in detail. In this example,
one per city.
In Visio, you can hyperlink from one chart to another. In the high level,
click on the city and the city level chart is launched. On the city chart,
place an icon that links to the higher level. In this way, you see complete
groups of information based on what you are probably looking for.

Subject: Creating a Navigation Chart
My Project Manager wants me to create a navigation chart for the software
application. I have tried using the Org Chart object in MS Word, Visio and
SmartDraw, but the chart is too large to fit in any of these formats. I do
not want to break it up at the same level and go to another page. Can
someone please suggest a better tool?
The problem is not that the charting application is too small...it's that
the application for which you are creating the application is too big.
