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

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.

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.
