I checked a couple of locations and I find this a very user-friendly and fairly accurate tool.
@Mike: The Ontario Lake is up to 800ft deep and this is reflected in the Elevation Finder. Absolutely correct.

Excellent tool, used it to work out land heights for noise assessment

What a POS program. No accuracy or elevation info.
Terribly inaccurate. Lake Ontario in North America is 300 ft. below sea level in places. The St. Lawrence River should flow backward.

This is very accurate, as I had checked through a GIS site and topo map site years ago on my property, and the elevation is dead on correct here. Thanks!!!
Great tool for Radio Amateurs looking for good VHF broadcast sites. It would be even more useful if it recognized UK Ordnance Survey (Land Ranger series) six figure Map references.
