Yes and no :-)

They are two different things that together with skinconf.xml and form the basic config documents that Forrest uses.

A linkmap, AKA site.xml, is for associating links with a name and making 
a navigation of the site.

A locationmap is instead a file that describes where Forrest should look 
for source files.

For example, let's say that you want all ./build/myreport/* files be 
used by Forrest to generate the projectdocs/reports/rep/* files: with 
the locationmap you can... once it's included in the mechanism :-)
