Definitions for "Elevation drawing"
(n) A type of drawing commonly used in civil, architectural, or engineering projects involving large structural layouts. An elevation drawing (sometimes called an elevation view) is an orthographic view perpendicular to the line of gravity (i.e., parallel to the terrain). These drawings are useful in planning the vertical arrangement of components within a structure, or of the structure relative to the terrain, and are also used to make aesthetic judgments since this view closely matches how the structure would be seen.
