jumpstation1. A Web jumpstation is an organized and annotated collection of external related links published within a Web site. For example, if you had a Web site about fishing, your compilation of hyperlinks to related fishing sites on the World Wide Web could be referred to as a fishing jumpstation. You will find that some may refer to this organized list of links as a springboard, but the two terms do have the same meaning.
