The arrangement, proportions, and details of any vertical side or face of a building. Also: an architectural drawing showing an exterior or interior wall of a building. A building’s main elevation is usually its facade.
The distance that any point on the ground is above a certain point called a datum. Elevations in Harris County range from 0 feet in the southeast by Galveston Bay to over 300 feet in the Northwest corner of the county. Back
The orthographic projection of a vertical element (building wall, façade or detail such as a door or window) onto a vertical picture plane. Elevations are identified by compass reference, ie., a north elevation is the view of the wall which faces in a northerly direction.
The front view of an object. Seen as if someone was standing outside a building at street level and looking at the object (as if taking a picture). There are usually four; front, rear, left side and right side.
The measurement of the tilt of a satellite antenna, measured in degrees, that is required to point the antenna at the communications satellite. If, for example, the antenna were aimed at the horizon, the elevation angle would be zero (directly overhead would be 90 degrees).
the highest level or degree attainable; "his landscapes were deemed the acme of beauty"; "the artist's gifts are at their acme"; "at the height of her career"; "the peak of perfection"; "summer was at its peak"; "...catapulted Einstein to the pinnacle of fame"; "the summit of his ambition"; "so many highest superlatives achieved by man"; "at the top of his profession"
The vertical angle used in combination with azimuth to describe the location of an object in the sky. An object on the horizon has an elevation of zero. An object at the zenith has an elevation of 90°, at which azimuth becomes meaningless.
A close cousin of the Azimuth, elevation refers to the height and angle (vertical axis) the satellite dish points while searching for a signal. Signal calculators will let you know what the correct elevation is. The elevation of your dish must be properly fixed in order to get the best signal possible.
A mechanically accurate, "head-on" drawing of a face of a building or object, without any allowance for the effect of the laws of perspective. Any measurement on an elevation will be in a fixed proportion, or scale, to the corresponding measurement on the real building.
The angular distance (up and down) of a satellite above the horizon. During installation of your DBS system, you (or the installer) can punch your zip code or latitude and longitude into the DBS receiver's setup screen and get precise elevation and azimuth angles for your location. You need this information to make sure that your dish is accurately aimed at the satellite.
A working drawing usually drawn to scale, showing the side view of a set or lighting rig. See plan. In the US, the term "elevation" refers to a Front elevation. A Rear elevation shows backs of scenic elements. A side view of a set is known as a "section".
The angle of the DIRECTV satellite above the horizon. It is important during set-up of the DIRECTV System and refers to the up and down adjustment of the dish antenna. Azimuth and elevation angles are displayed on a satellite receiver set-up screen given either a zip code or latitude and longitude.
The exterior face of your home. It also shows material used as brick, stone, limestone or cedar. It provides a flat view of any exterior side of a home or a view of a single wall in a room. An elevation shows no depth.
The component of sound localization that pertains to the vertical height of a sound source. Elevation cues are related to the shape of the outer ear (pinna). Elevation appears to be learned. See also azimuth.
Is the vertical distance above or below an arbitrarily assumed level surface of curved surface every element of which is normal to the plumb line. The level surface used for reference is called datum. The datum in this case is the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88).
Engine horsepower ratings meet SAE J1349. Reduce these HP ratings by 3.5% for each 1000 feet, over 328 feet above sea level. This reduction in horsepower is in direct proportion to the reduction in generator KW output.
Angular distance of a celestial object above the horizon plane, measured on a great circle passing through the object and the zenith. Synonymous with the altitude angle. 2. In surveying, a height above mean sea level.
The upward tilt to a satellite antenna measured in degrees required to aim the antenna at the communications satellite. When. aimed at the horizon, the elevation angle is zero. If it were tilted to a point directly overhead, the satellite antenna would have an elevation of 90 degrees, depending on the offset of the antenna.
The up/down positioning of the satellite antenna. When you are adjusting the antenna, you can enter your ZIP code into the Point Dish and Signal Strength menu, and the display will show the approximate elevation for your antenna.
1. A measure (or condition) of height, especially with respect to the height of a point on the earth's surface above a reference plane (usually mean sea level), as "station elevation." The term altitude (e.g., "high-altitude station") and the general term "height" are also used in this sense. 2. Same as elevation angle.
The front view or views from the street as shown in the blueprint plans of a home. End Dam sed to close the ends of a subsill so the water will not leak out the ends. It makes the subsill a complete water trough allowing it to collect excess water and drain it to the exterior.
The upward tilt to a satellite antenna measured in degrees required to aim the antenna at the communications satellite. When. aimed at the horizon, the elevation angle is zero. If it is tilted to a point directly overhead, the satellite antenna has an elevation of 90 degrees. A 90 ° elevation happens only at the equator, when the site of the earth station is directly below the satellite - at the sub-satellite point.
A drawing of the walls of one side of a building, either interior or exterior, with all lines drawn to a scale to show true vertical and horizontal dimension; also used in reference to the vertical plane of a building, as in the 'west elevation'.
One of the two measurements required in order to point your satellite dish to the proper direction and angle to receive signals for a satellite. The elevation is the vertical angle (up and down). The other measurement is azimuth. The actual angles for both depend on your physical location relative to the satellite.
Elevation is given in feet above mean sea level and is a daily average of hourly measures. At most sites this will change less than a fraction of a foot over normal operations. Elevation is measured in the forebay of a project.
(1) Vertical distance from the datum, usually mean sea level, to a point or object on the Earth's surface. Not to be confused with altitude, which refers to points or objects above the Earth's surface. (2) architectural: An orthographic projection of any object into a vertical plane.
The angle in degrees at which an antenna is tilted above the horizon to acquire the signal for a given satellite. Antennas pointed at the horizon from a level surface have an elevation of 0°. Antennas pointed directly overhead from a level surface have an elevation of 90°. Equatorial antennas use an angle of 90° and this angle will decrease towards 0° as you move north or south from the equator. The highest evelation value in degrees will usually be for the satellite directly due south* of the antennas position and will fall off slightly to the east and west depending on the satellite's position in the portion of the equatorial arc visible from the antennas position.* Some satellites are positioned in what are referred to as inclined orbits. These satellites are positioned slightly north or south of the true equatorial plane. These satellites will have elevation values that will differ in correspondence with the number of degrees of inclination from the true equatorial plane.
In digital imaging software, this term refers to the height of an imaginary light source over an image. The elevation of the light works in conjunction with azimuth to generate a three-dimensional emboss effect.
(1) The drawings of the front, sides, or rear face of a building. (2) The vertical distance between the level where fluid enters a pipe and the level where it leaves. It must be added to the total discharge head if the inlet is lower than the outlet and subtracted if the inlet is higher.
The elevation of a geographic location is its height above a fixed reference point, often the mean sea level. Elevation, or geometric height, is mainly used when referring to points on the Earth's surface, while altitude or geopotential height is used for points above the surface, such as an aircraft in flight or a spacecraft in orbit.
The act of raising from a lower place, condition, or quality to a higher; -- said of material things, persons, the mind, the voice, etc.; as, the elevation of grain; elevation to a throne; elevation of mind, thoughts, or character.
Vaporisation by means of heat. Alchemical: A process in which spiritual portions are elevated from the material or corporeal; the subtle raised from the gross in the form of vapor at the top of a vessel. Dry elevation is called Sublimation*; humid or moist elevation is called Distillation.
In Christian liturgy the term elevation is used to denote the ritual of raising the consecrated elements of bread and wine during the celebration of the Eucharist. The term refers principally to the elevation immediately after the consecration of each element, though see below. The practice was instituted in the thirteenth century http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/05380b.htm The Elevation article in Catholic Encyclopedia.
Elevation means how high something is. In the mountains, the high elevations are the mountain peaks where nothing grows. The low elevations are the valleys at the bottoms of the mountains, where plants grow and people and many animals find what they need to survive.
"Elevation" is the third track and third single release from U2's 2000 album, All That You Can't Leave Behind. Featuring a thunderous beat, a variety of sound effects on the central guitar riff, and an easy rhyming lyric for the audience to shout along with, it was highly effective in that concert-starting role and became a hit in the United States and the United Kingdom. Thus it was used as the concert opener during the Elevation Tour and near the beginning of shows in the subsequent Vertigo Tour.
Elevation is the progressive bluegrass debut album of the Yonder Mountain String Band. It was released in 1999 by Frog Pad Records, an independent record label run by the band. The album features appearances by bluegrass musicians Mike Marshall and Darol Anger.
The vertical distance between the level where fluid enters a pipe and the level where it leaves. It must be added to the total discharge head if the inlet is lower than the outlet and subtracted if the inlet is higher. As a rule of good installation practice, however, pipes should slope continuously upward from the inlet to the outlet to prevent entrapment of air.
