Wonderful. Delighted to have found this site. Yes, it would be good to have some techie detail about the basis of the elevation, but for most of us that is only a detail.

Thank you! It would be wonderful if you could specify a perimeter, and then get the lat/long/altitude points within that area.. (just wishful thinking)

I can see questions on here but not the answers. What is elevation? Above sea level?
By Jackie on 25th January 2018

@ FAI Google it. Example I JUST Googled What is the average altitude of the Catskills? And got my answer immediately from numerous sources.

Good idea, but is there any way to enlarge tiny map (not zoom) .... make map a more significant proportion of website page ..... ?

Great! I had reservations for a beautiful but "mountainous" resort and I thought it might be too high for me. Your map showed me that it was not. Thanks!
