Finding an elevation from a lat/lon is a great tool. Would love to be able to use this programmatically; submit a lat/lon and have elevation returned. Possibly submit a table of location IDs, lats, and lons and have the table returned with corresponding elevations added.

This would be great if you could accept a list of zips as input so you could use this on a macro level.

What reference data you are using for Elevation information

Hi Rodger, what format did you input the lat and long?
By Free Map Tools on 27/12/2015

Putting in Lat. & Long. to start had me in the North Sea but after clicking on the map it came up with a realistic height and very similar Lat. & Long. Could there be some confusion over degrees East or West because it seemed as far East of Greenwich as we are West.
