Site Plans are probably one of the most interesting of the plan sets because it shows the relationship that our design has with it's social and geographic context.
Therefore, representing a site plan in a correct way can become crucial in order for our clients or our peers to understand if your project is created in the correct way.
Although you can create site plans in many programs, not all programs were made to create site plans. Or at least not in the most effective way.
Choosing the correct software workflow can also be decisive when creating these plans.
