Topographical views

Subject Source: Art & Architecture Thesaurus
Scope Note: Refers to pictorial or photographic representations that faithfully (though not necessarily with total accuracy) depict actual locations. May be "landscapes (representations)," "cityscapes (visual works)," or "townscapes (representations)," though those terms tend to imply invention whereas "topographical views" implies recording of appearances. For faithful drawings of individual buildings, use "measured drawings," "record drawings," or "as-built drawings."
