Site Map Redundant?

I'm building a site using a canonical structure and canonical linking; does this make the need for a site map largely redundant?

A site map may be redundant if all pages are cross-linked, but for engines that may set depth limits on spidering, having a site map linked from the home page will ensure that any page on the site is no more than two levels deep. My personal inclination would be to keep it.

Thanks for that, if I use sub-domains, should each one have its own site map, or is that over the top?

I don't think that it is over the top.....but I would keep each sub-domain to it's own. Only have the site-map have links inside the sub-domain.....don't overlap

I agree with agerhart and rogerd. There is no reason not to have a site map.
