Lighting and switch layout

This electrical floor plan sample shows the lighting and switch layout.
"In building wiring, a light switch is a switch, most commonly used to operate electric lights, permanently connected equipment, or electrical outlets. Portable lamps such as table lamps will have a light switch mounted on the socket, base, or in-line with the cord. Manually operated on/off switches may be substituted by remote control switches, or light dimmers that allow controlling the brightness of lamps as well as turning them on or off. Light switches are also found in flashlights and automobiles and other vehicles." [Light switch. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Lighting" contains 55 symbols of lighting devices and equipment, light sources, lamps and light fixtures.
"Lighting or illumination is the deliberate use of light to achieve a practical or aesthetic effect. Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylight.
Indoor lighting is usually accomplished using light fixtures, and is a key part of interior design. Lighting can also be an intrinsic component of landscape projects." [Lighting. Wikipedia]

"Architectural lighting design is a field within architecture and architectural engineering that concerns itself primarily with the illumination of buildings. The objective of architectural lighting design is to obtain sufficient light for the purposes of the building, balancing factors of initial and operating cost, appearance, and energy efficiency. Lighting designers are often specialists who must understand the physics of light production and distribution, and the physiology and psychology of light perception by humans. Architectural lighting design is generally concerned with the permanent illumination of a structure. Concert and theatrical lighting have different purposes and practitioners."

This reflected ceiling plan (RCP) sample shows lighting and HVAC layout.
"A "reflected ceiling plan" shows a view of the room as if looking from above, through the ceiling, at a mirror installed one foot below the ceiling level, which shows the reflected image of the ceiling above. This convention maintains the same orientation of the floor and ceilings plans - looking down from above. Reflected Ceiling Plans or RCP's are used by designers and architects to demonstrate lighting, visible mechanical features, and ceiling forms as part of the documents provided for construction."

This reflected ceiling plan example shows the lighting scheme of computer lab with overhead projector. It was drawn on the base of the RCP from website of Elon University, Elon, NC.
[elon.edu/docs/e-web/bft/cmdept/Reflected%20Ceiling.JPG]
"An overhead projector is a variant of slide projector that is used to display images to an audience. ...
Use in education.
The overhead projector facilitates an easy low-cost interactive environment for educators. Teaching materials can be pre-printed on plastic sheets, upon which the educator can directly write using a non-permanent, washable color marking pen. This saves time, since the transparency can be pre-printed and used repetitively, rather than having materials written manually before each class.
The overhead is typically placed at a comfortable writing height for the educator and allows the educator to face the class, facilitating better communication between the students and teacher. The enlarging features of the projector allow the educator to write in a comfortable small script in a natural writing position rather than writing in an overly large script on a blackboard and having to constantly hold his arm out in midair to write on the blackboard.
When the transparency sheet is full of written or drawn material, it can simply be replaced with a new, fresh sheet with more pre-printed material, again saving class time vs a blackboard that would need to be erased and teaching materials rewritten by the educator. Following the class period, the transparencies are easily restored to their original unused state by washing off with soap and water." [Overhead projector. Wikipedia]

How to Create a Reflected Ceiling Floor Plan

A Reflected Ceiling Plan (RCP) is a drawing of a room or building, looking down at the interior ceiling. Making RCP involves many different reflected ceiling plan symbols that can be managed using ConceptDraw PRO. Using ConceptDraw PRO you can design the reflected ceiling floor plan that shows the location of light fixtures and any other items that may be suspended from the ceiling. You can share your ceiling design ideas by saving drawings as graphics files, or printing them. Read more

How to Draw a Landscape Design Plan

What is landscape design? It's a floor plan but for an outdoor area. Same as a floor plan, a landscape design represents visually any site using scaled dimensions. The main purpose of landscape design is to plan the layout for an outdoor area no matter is it a personal site plan for your home or a commercial plan for business. It may also be handful when a new installation, repair or even an outdoor event is planning. It helps to calculate time and decide which materials should be used in your project. Landscape designs perfectly gives the property owner and landscape contractor better vision for cost estimation, helping to ensure the project time and budget. Read more
