Hi, to get the elevation of [Laramie, WY], type it in to the address box, select [Laramie, WY]. Click on the map where you wish to get an elevation reading. In my case I got 2180.9 m.

This site suxs. All I want is to the evelation of cities in Wyoming and all it does is keep running you around in circles. Why can't you just give a simple answer to a simple question- What is the altitude of Laramie, WY, but no, you just put in a loop. Worthless site.

Therese, it is elevation from mean sea level
By Free Map Tools on 31st January 2017

Does this show height above low tide point - ie zero datum, so that the height shown is ~8m less above high tide sea level somewhere like Cornwall, UK? (That is, a height of 18m shown here is only about 10 meters above the spring tide high tide?)

not accurate!!

Useful! Now I know I gain 302.5 ft ele. in 9/10 mi. when I walk home from work!
By Terri on 14th January 2017

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. This is a great tool for ....stuff.
