Overhead schematic of your lights or set up

I believe the design you have linked can be used like this.

You draw your composition on the right most square, then on the left: smaller square you can draft an overhead schematic of your...

light set-up
blocking
camera placement
etc.

This sort of plot is also well utilized in the very powerful frameforge 3d software.

All the Best
