In architecture, “elevation” refers to a two-dimensional representation or drawing of the exterior façade or face of a building. It is a scaled view of one side of a structure, showing the vertical planes, features, and elements such as windows, doors, columns, and architectural details. Elevation drawings provide a clear depiction of the building’s appearance, indicating the proportions, dimensions, and arrangement of its various components as viewed from a particular angle or direction. In surveying, levation refers to the vertical distance or height above a fixed reference point, often the Earth’s surface. It is a measurement used to determine the position of a point or object in relation to sea level or ground level. It is crucial for various applications, including construction, where it ensures structures are built level and helps in planning drainage and irrigation systems.
