How do you describe elevation?

An elevation drawing is a one dimensional (flat) execution of a portion of a floor plan or architectural rendering of a house plan. It is seen 'head on' or as if you were facing the particular wall or home from the front.

What is the definition of elevation?

It depends upon the context. In mathematics, elevation usually refers to how much something is raised, and the angle of elevation would be the angle between the horizontal and the direct line to the object. In ballistics, elevation is the angle of elevation of mathematics. In architecture, it refers to a vertical aspect of something, e.g. the front elevation of a house would be the vertical front of the house as someone looks at it from the street. In cartography (map making), elevation would usually refer to how high something is above [mean] sea level.

When an elevation drawing says north does that mean looking north or north side?

There are two schools of thought regarding elevation views of buildings. Some say that when you are standing to the north of a building, you are looking at the North Elevation, because THAT is the side that is FACING North. Others say that since you are LOOKING to the South, you are looking at the South Elevation. I myself am baffled that there is even this confusion. Consider this. If you are looking at a house and you can see the front door and the front side of the house, you naturally call this the Front Elevation. There is no ambiguity. You wouldn't think to argue that because you are LOOKING in the DIRECTION of the rear of the building, that you are looking at the rear elevation? That would make no sense at all! So why do some then insist that the name of the elevation is based on the direction you are looking? The North Elevation is the North side of the building. That's it, done!
