Elevation Finder

This tool can be used to find an estimate for the elevation of a point on the earth. Click/tap the map or type the address in the text box.

[12th July 2018] Unfortunately, due to a large price increase in back-end services, we have had to alter the elevation and address/place service providers. This may result in changes to precision or accuracy of the estimates returned.

Every time I type in my full address it changes to the street name in some other state???

An alternative place search provider has been introduced. Business decisions are based on the aim of providing users such as yourself with a tool for free but not paying large amounts to do this. We hope you have appreciated this free tool until now and will continue to appreciate this free tool.

So the change you made was to remove the ability to search the map using an address? Someone thought this was a good business decision? This site is now useless. I hope someone at this site enjoys seeing the site traffic hit rock bottom!

Thank you. This is an excellent tool. I wish the page had an explanation about the source of the data and how to submit corrections. I'm also wondering if there's a way to deal with tunnels. For example, a bicycle path near where I live has a tunnel going under a highway. Both Google's show-directions tool and this site show the bicycle path's elevation as though it is on the surface and not 20 feet (6 meters) under the surface where the tunnel is.

It is based on MSL
By Free Map Tools on 28th May 2018

Is this HAE or MSL elevation? I feel there is something wrong about the elevation ... How come mountains that were 2911 meters Above sea level are now 1868 meters.... Can you confirm please? Thanks!

its accurate somewhat..

A fundamental piece of information is missing: Is the elevation HAE or MSL?
