- plans (drawings) - Use for orthographic drawings in the horizontal plane, generally depicting discrete objects or spaces. Can also be used for a set of drawings for a project.

For representations in plan view of portions of the earth's surface, emphasizing arterial or regional relationships and using larger scales, prefer "maps." [April 1992 descriptor moved. September 1991 descriptor changed, was "plans"; alternate term changed, was 'plan'. April 1991 scope note changed.]
