I am impressed. I have been looking for this for quite some time. Only thing that would make it better is if it would give you an average grade or fill necessary, but that would make my job too easy. Glad to have found you.

It would be very helpful if by clicking the cursor on a point on a map, it would tell you what the elevation is at that point. Is there some where on this site that I can do that or is there another map site for that.

whats the reference to site if I was to use a elevation from this site?
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.

i love this
***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.
how can I save my map with the elevation data?
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.
This provides interesting information.
