### Difference Between Perspective & Parallel Projection in Tabular From

**S.NO.** | **PERSPECTIVE PROJECTIONS** | **PARALLEL PROJECTION** |

1. | If COP[ Centre Of Projection] is located at a finite point in 3 space , the result is a perspective projection. | If COP [ Centre Of Projection] is located at infinity, all the projectors are parallel and the result is a parallel projection. |

2. | Perspective projection is representing or drawing objects which resemble the real thing | parallel projection is used in drawing objects when perspective projection cannot be used. |

3. | perspective projection represents objects in a three-dimensional way. | Parallel projection is much like seeing objects through a telescope, letting parallel light rays into the eyes which produce visual representations without depth |

4. | In perspective projection, objects that are far away appear smaller, and objects that are near appear bigger | parallel projection does not create this effect. |

5. | While parallel projection may be best for architectural drawings, in cases wherein measurements are necessary | it is better to use perspective projection. |

6. | perspective projections require a distance between the viewer and the target point. | In parallel projection the center of projection is at infinity, while in prospective projection, the center of projection is at a point. |

7. | Types: 1.one point perspective, 2.Two point perspective, 3. Three point perspective, | Types: 1.Orthographic 2.Oblique |
