 Is a view of an object seen as though the viewer's line of sight were simultaneously perpendicular to every point on the face of the object (Ex. floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, elevations and sections). Also used as a basis for some three-dimensional drawings including axonometric drawings.
Term

Term
 Isometric Drawings

 Three-dimensional view of an object where the object is tilted in relationship to the picture plane (rather than parallel in relationship to the picture plane, as with orthographic drawings).
Term
 Oblique Drawings
Definition
 Three-dimenshional view of an object where one plane of hte object is parallel to the picture plane while the third axis is obliqe to the picture plane.
Term
 Perspective Drawings
Definition
 Give the most accurate two-dimensional representation of the three-dimensional world.
