What are the best practices for developing network diagrams

Last Modified: 2015-09-02
I am looking for the best way (best practices) to build a good and accurate network diagram and what is the best information to include? I realize the obvious as to add flow elements such as the modem-->firewall/router-->switches-->servers-->work stations-->etcetera, BUT just want to check with you experts on the very best practices in building one of these diagrams.

Thank you in advance!
