Developers need to see the overall design of their code to investigate issues, add new capabilities, on-board a new colleague, or improve the structure of their code. Code map is a tool in Visual Studio for doing just this. This video shows how code map can be used to visualize the design and architecture of a .NET application direct from code, highlighting some of the new features introduced in Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 and Visual Studio 2015.

    when mentioning the evolution of Codemaps and it's history in the different Visual Studio versions, you neglect to mention the imho most important part: that it's only available in the ultimate editions AFAIK. Please correct me if I am wrong, as neither the video nor the description holds this info.

    I would argue, that most developers are not fortunate enough to own an ultimate edition of VS and therefore can't use this (albeit cool looking) feature.

    Maybe you could update at least the info text accordingly and save those of us who only have the pro, community or express editions some time.

    Take care,
