Scope Note: Refers to drawings, sketches, prints, computer graphics, or works in other media depicting a building or any object viewed from above, geometrically represented as projected on a horizontal plane.

For general reference to depictions or photographs showing structures or sites seen from directly above, use ""plan views""For representations of portions of the Earth's surface use ""maps"" or ""plans (maps)"" .
