Diagram That Contains All The Different Kind Of Physics?

In summary, the conversation was about the search for a diagram that shows the different departments or studies within physics, such as Quantum Physics or Physics of Sound Waves. The speaker mentioned that Hyperphysics and the PACS codes from the American Institute of Physics are useful resources for categorizing physics sub-disciplines. Both physzguy and martinh provided helpful websites for this purpose.

I am looking for some kind of a diagram, general or analytic, that shows all the different kind of Physics "Departments"-"Studies" or what you would call them, like Quantum Physics, Physics of Sound Waves, or something like that.

I know it is a very general question but anything you know of would be of great help. Thanks in advance.

The http://www.aip.org/publishing/pacs/pacs-2010-regular-edition codes (Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme) categorize all of the sub-disciplines of physics down to a very detailed level.
