Legend is a concise explanation of the symbols used in a chart, diagram, drawing, map, table, etc. A legend is usually conspicuously displayed in a tabular form.

Line callouts provide a background for text that can be linked by a line to an anchor point. The symbols used for the leader line, accent bar, and border can be changed to suit the specific needs of the application for the callout.

Node is a point in a network or diagram at which lines or pathways intersect or branch.

Task is the smallest identifiable and essential piece of a job that serves as a unit of work, and as a means of differentiating between the various components of a project.

Project is a planned set of interrelated tasks to be executed over a fixed period and within certain cost and other limitations.
