It does show the elevation, above the box below.
BUT! It is a bit hit & miss. I tried 2 places in my city and both were exactly the same%u2026 so not pin point accuracy, sadly.

Don't "click" on the "marker"!
Position the "crosshairs" next to the "marker" then "click" for the elavation to show.

Just click on the map and the altitude will be displayed under the map measured in meters and ft
No elevation info displayed for me.

Hmmn. I'm moving house shortly and I know I'm going to be at the bottom of a hill I'm currently at the top of - yet it says the elevation will be a foot HIGHER...

I LOVE THIS!!! How accurate are the estimates? How is the elevation determined? Does FEMA use this tool?

must be an idiot because I couldn't find the elevation "below the map"
cool, but how accurate is the estimate?
Great - very clever
Very nice website. Extremely helpful. Thanks! P.S. - For those not finding elevation info, click just below the balloon (til the cursor becomes a cross) and you'll get it.

Need an application to hook up to Excel to find altitude at many lat/long points.
