Site plan and not roof plan

by default revit shows roof plan in the Site plan view. 

Is it possible to show site plan that one line would  represent building contour? Also is it possible to cast shadows of all the building if the first floor is selected? 

i was trying to make site plan from the fist floor, but since i gave intense topography ground is being cut and i need full topography.

i am using 2013 revit.

Please help.

The site plan view shows the roof because the view range

for that view is set to cut very high, but you can change it. 


As for shadows in plan view, yes just turn them on.

If topography gets above the first floor and is being cut, I believe you could try creating a plan region around the building, lowering the cut plain at the building but keeping the high cut plain for the rest of the site.

View>Plan View>Plan Region
