Excellent system, gave me the elevation for a remote house on the mountainside in Madeira. Used Google Maps to find the long and lat, easy peasy.

I use this tool to acquire elevation information to assist botanical identifications. It works very well for me on the Safari browser.

Great for finding height AMSL before flying RPA AGL.Height AGL + AMSL gives total height AMSL which can conflict with GA aircraft flying AMSL.
