distinguish betwwen a plan , a sketch and a map
Sketch (maps): Roughly drawn maps which may be inaccurate but can be quickly created.
Maps: Should be accurate. Can be any scale. Features are drawn in their true position (within limitations of scale). Can be topographic; thematic; political etc.
Plans: very Large Scale maps showing lots of detail. maybe of a single site.

scale.It cannot show too many details.It is large in size.
Sketch=A sketch is a rough drawing showing the relative position of a place with reference to a few other chosen
places or features.It is a rough drawing not drawn to scale.It shows only necessary or relevant details.It maybe 1 to 5
cm in size.
plan=A plan is a drawingthat shows layout of a small area.It is drawn on a large scale.It shows accurate details.It is small in size.
Sketches is a rough drawing of small area or a place or area it is not drawn to scale .
Map are representations of the Earth surface on a flat surface like paper they are made by cartographers there are three types of maths physical ,political and thematic
Plans are a set of two-dimensional diagrams or drawings used to describe a place or object, or to communicate building or fabrication instructions. Usually plans are drawn or printed on paper, but they can take the form of a digital file.
(b) Although most commonly used to depict geography, maps may represent any space, real or imagined, without regard to context or scale; e.g. Brain mapping, DNA mapping, and extra-terrestrial mapping.
Plans are often for technical purposes such as architecture, engineering, or planning. Their purpose in these disciplines is to accurately and unambiguously capture all the geometric features of a site, building, product or component. Plans can also be for presentation or orientation purposes, and as such are often less detailed versions of the former. The end goal of plans is either to portray an existing place or object, or to convey enough information to allow a builder or manufacturer to realize a design.
(c)Many but not all maps are drawn to a scale, allowing the reader to infer the actual sizes of, and distances between, depicted objects. A larger scale shows more detail, thus requiring a larger map to show the same area.
Plans are usually scale drawings, meaning that the plans are drawn at specific ratio relative to the actual size of the place or object. Various scales may be used for different drawings in a set. For example, a floor plan may be drawn at 1:50 (or 1/4"=1'-0") whereas a detailed view may be drawn at 1:25 (or 1/2"=1'-0"). Site plans are often drawn at 1:200 or 1:100
(d)To communicate spatial information effectively, features such as rivers, lakes, and cities need to be labeled. Over centuries cartographers have developed the art of placing names on even the densest of maps. Text placement or name placement can get mathematically very complex as the number of labels and map density increases. Therefore, text placement is time-consuming and labor-intensive, so cartographers and GIS users have developed automatic label placement to ease this process
Their's a big difference between a map and a sketch. A sketch is just an imaginary image of a specific place. It is usually used when someone ask for the location of a certain place or area. On the other hand, a map is used mainly in Geographical study, where you can recognize important geographical facts for a certain country. for example, in United States, with the map we can easilly know some geographical facts about united States, its capital city, major cities and the highest and lowest peak. Map is common for us. In school, office, and even in some homes, there's a map.
