Most of the sites have 2 sitemap, one is sitemap.xml which is for search engine crawler and one is sitemap.html which is for a visitor. When we update any page, sitemap informs search engine about that updation/changes.

For instance if you want to restrict web crawler to access image page, you have to mention that page into this file. You can see your robots.txt file by writing your domain name and /robots.txt
