Does anyone know of good materials to study industry standards for graphics on site plans? In my experience this information has been variable & I'd like to learn some of these standards in preparation for this exam. The items I find a little confusing are how to identify coniferous trees vs deciduous trees. Also, on solar studies, is there a standard for how buildings and shadows are represented? One hatch might describe a building, and another hatch might describe a shadow, so it can get confusing to distinguish which is which if a shadow is directly next to a building on a site plan.
I've looked through Architectural Graphic Standards, which has a ton of useful information, but doesn't reference shading on site plans, or deciduous vs coniferous tree symbols. I'm hoping someone here might have some insight.
