Hi Sam, the output is an estimate for the distance above mean sea level. So as you go over water the figure will likely be negative as it gives the distance from mean sea level to the sea floor.

Sea level should be zero, right? I get high negatives! Try it yourself. But on land its pretty close and good fun.

***This is not accurate at all***. I have a point which I know for certain is between 7m-8m and wanted to find it more precisely. This tool tells me it's 13m!

I don't think it's accurate.

interesting but not very accurate, especially if dense vegetation is hindering the ground. I had a river perched ten metres above the floodplain! Not likely - oh well.

It even shows the altitude difference of a driveway and little hills.

It is very accurate and it shows elevation on hills the same as I see them go up or down in real life. I think it is accurate and very interesting.

It is very accurate and precise as far as I know.
