I don't know how you got the info but it is accurate enough for me to do basic planning for new construction in a flood zone. THANKS!

It really helps me this time, i thank the creator of this, because my study in research is all about altitude... thank you again..

it's a great help

I think it gives average elevation. The older version was much more accurate.

Hi, thank you for creating this site! I have had very little luck getting this information in any useful format anywhere else. However, I second the request to be able to download this data - it would be fantastic to be able to specify an area and get all the elevations in that area (to a given level of detail) in an ascii or other common format. But either way, thanks again!

It would be good if there was a button to toggle all the elevations on screen at once instead of having to individually press on one at a time to see the elevation number!

JH, Thanks. Yes, the address search gets the map zoomed to that area. You then need to click or tap on the location for which you want the estimated elevation.

Saeed, it can only estimate an elevation at a single requested location and not do a search such as this.
By Free Map Tools on 28th March 2017

James Thomas ... after you type in the address you have to click on the map where you want the elevation numbers from ... then at the bottom you will see your elevation ...
