Line sketch refers to the drawing that is needed prior to commencement of the construction work. It also provides specific ideas on what should be constructed.

Plan, section and elevation are three major parts of the construction to obtain the idea and accomplish the specific plan for the construction. Plans belong to more like strategic drawings where you search for organizational strategies.
