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?

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!
