A two-dimensional graphic representation of an object showing a plan, a vertical elevation, and/or a section.

Map projection that presents the Earth's surface in two-dimensions as if it were being observed from a great distance in space. Distortion of areas and angles becomes greater as you move from the center of the projection to its edges.

The method of producing an image or view of an object by projecting points of the object onto an imaginary picture plane such that all projections are at right angles to the picture plane. The importance of this method is that lines of the object that are parallel to the picture plane are true length in the resulting view. They can therefore be drawn to scale.

The two-dimensional graphic representation of an object formed by the perpendicular intersections of lines drawn from points on the object to a plane of projection.

That system of projection in which the rays are parallel. This is the system which is most largely used in engineering work.

a projection that is commonly used to show a representation of a globe from space

() A system of showing an object in several views.

An Orthographic projection is a type of map in which is essentially a drawing of (one side of) a globe. There is a lot of distortion of area in this type of map, but one gets the idea that the globe is being represented.

a method of drawing which shows different views of an object and constructional details

Projection of a single view of an object on a drawing surface that is perpendicular to both the view and the lines of projection; floor plans, elevations, and sections of buildings are orthographic projections.

In rendering, the process of applying a flat image of a surface onto an object.

(n) A parallel projection technique that creates a 2-D image of 3-D objects or structures on an image plane perpendicular to the lines of sight. The orthographic projection technique can produce pictorial drawings, such as isometric or oblique, that show the three dimensions of an object or multiviews that only show two dimensions of an object in a single view.

In Euclidean geometry, an orthographic projection is an orthogonal projection. In particular, in 3D it is an affine, parallel projection of an object onto a perpendicular plane.

Orthographic projection is a map projection of cartography. Like the Stereographic projection and Gnomonic projection, Orthographic projection is a perspective (or azimuthal) projection, in which the sphere is projected onto a tangent plane or secant plane. The point of perspective for the Orthographic projection is at infinite distance.
