Useful! Now I know I gain 302.5 ft ele. in 9/10 mi. when I walk home from work!

Is there a way to combine the "measure distance on a map" with the "elevation finder" and obtain a CSV file of the elevation along a particular path? That would be super useful!

Very nice tool, Thank u So much

Steve, the data is based on point samples so the precision of the sample could be relatively high, but the ability to find the highest point (in order words, just so happen a sample point falls on the highest point) is the downfall.

Hi: Very Nice site. I was checking Mount Kilimanjaro (Uhuru Peak). The highest I find on your tool is 5,873m rather than the 5,895m listed as the "official" height. 22 m seems to be a large difference given the accuracy presented (1DP). Can you advise why? Thank you

Thanks for your comments. Can I ask why? It was providing (apparent) precession to 3DPs, so to the nearest mm. On the scale this tool operates we decided 1DP was sufficient, so to the nearest 10cm.

Can you please change the decimal places back to how it was before?

Just clicked on smugglers lane near Chichester/Portsmouth and it came up 13,606 feet !!! I doubt it, its almost sea level, not the top of K2

its not very accurate, just clicked my house and another that is down the hill from mine, that i know is 15 feet lower, but this map shows it as 1 feet higher, OK as a guide only but as useful as a chocolate poker.

Hi, I am trying to calculate elevation for Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island, NY - a coastal location. The elevation is coming back as 660.0 M. Is this above sea level? If so it could not be right. Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks. By Brook on 03/10/201

Despite placing pointer on map I cannot get an altitude reading.

If this is using the Google API, you may be hitting the max requests per day for some of the outages referenced in other comments. Unfortunately, I don't know a way around that limitation.
