Nice. But Can I find the highest elevation of an area?
By thibaut on 26th September 2020

Tried this, no matter where you click it says "Elevation -9999.0 m, -32,805.1 ft." That is the elevation of some of the deepest ocean trenches... and it's not like I'm not clicking on land.

What is the 0 ft reference for the Altitude? Is it Mean Sea Level (MSL), Height Above the Ellipsoid (HAE), or something else?

Success is to simplify complex problems and then do it.

horribly unusably inaccurate. it shows the elevation on top of a mountain that I know is fairly flat at 810.4 feet. then suddenly theres a fine line, which I know doesn't change in elevation more than 50 feet or so, that changes to 1266.4 feet. it also shows the top of the mountain, one spot in particular I know of, to be 15XX feet. at the bottom which I know to be right around 770 feet it shows the same exact height. if you go further from the mountain, at a fine line, it suddenly drops to 721.8 feet.

This information is incorrect. When you can visually see the difference in height but you have it as the same. I would recommend that you start over from scratch.

I've used this for a while and it was pretty accurate but the discrepancies in height are now substantial.
