For some reason the elevation finder isn't currently working, any chance of a fix please as it's a very useful tool.

How to find altitude here?

Like the bloke who lived in the Netherlands, I'm getting 4 to 5m differences between two points 60m apart where they just don't exist; on the ground it's just a gentle slope not a steep one. Where am I going wrong? Is this just too small a scale to be accurate with this system?

How about having some colour choices for the marker - on wooded or farm land a red or orange might be easier to see. Another option would be to see contour lines, adjustable (say 5/10/20/50/100m) to be turned on or off.

Jon, it should appear as soon as the page loads. I assume you are seeing a big empty space? Could you try a different web browser?

Where is the map?
By Jon on 24/09/2015

okey this map kinda doesnt make sense at all, half of the places i lived in in the netherlands were supposedly 4 to 5 metres above sealevel.... Holland above sealevel is like having hell freezing over

Hi Jon, this has been added.

When clicking on a point to obtain the height, it would be useful to have the Lat and Long for that point displayed to say 6dp. It would give our feeders a one stop shop for height and Lat/Long. Jon www.mlat-radar.net
