How to Draw a Base Map By Rachel Ragatz Views: a Matter of Perspective There are three 2-Dimensional ways Landscape Architects draw a space. These are as follows: Plan View. Imagine yourself flying over a specific outdoor location (your site). If you look down, you will be looking from your site from what is called plan view . Elevation View. If you were to land on the ground and look around, you would see the site from an elevation view. Section View. If you were to take a giant knife and cut the site in half (or if an earthquake were to crack the ground open in front of you, you would now see a section view. This view would include everything that was touched by the knife, but in such a way that you could see the insides of built objects (like seat walls, for example), but people and animals, and sometime inanimate objects like cars are still drawn whole and intact. Landscape Architects also draw a several 3-D images (think a photograph, not a 3-D movie), including several kinds of perspectives, panorama views, etc. These will not be discussed here, but are important ways to understand a space and some should be included in a design rendering.
