Absolutely fascinating. Thanks.Curious, I checked Grand Banks off Newfoundland, and in some places -200 feet, yet suddenly the plunge even to 17,000 feet. You can see it on Google maps, but have no sense of depth.Even more peculiar are places on LAND which are over 1,000 feet BELOW sea level. I love exploring Google Maps, but added this to my address bar and open both beside each other to compare. LOOOVE IT. Some predict flooding of coastlines Carolinas,Georgia, New York. So I used your map depths. Also checked Challenger Deep/Mariana Trench 36,000 ft deep, and the Puerto Rico Trench almost 28,900 feet, 2 deepest trenches in the world.Fascinating tool...and gee, it is free.

if we are on a globe then why are all sea levels based of a flat earth map .. i no this due to distance and so called earth curvature calculations if you are 1200 miles inland then due to earth curvature calculations the land should be over 200miles above see level

Unfortunately, i have found this to be wildly inaccurate as well. I tested the altitude of Genoa, VIC, which seems to be 13.7m above sea level. And then i tested the altitude of the Mallacoota foreshore, which is (according to my eyes and the location on the coast) at sea level, but the reading was 12.7m above sea level. What's the deal?

interesting! had a topographic survey made last month and this map is either 6 m overestimated or the topographer made an error...

I love it xxx thank you, I wondered how high my house was from sea level. Now I know

Not very accurate. Looked at my house relative to a stream 100 meters away and at a 20% grade. Shows me less than a meter higher when in reality it is more like 20 meters different

Totally incorrect for London, UK

It is very useful to improve our geographical knowledge

Finding an elevation from a lat/lon is a great tool. Would love to be able to use this programmatically; submit a lat/lon and have elevation returned. Possibly submit a table of location IDs, lats, and lons and have the table returned with corresponding elevations added.

This would be great if you could accept a list of zips as input so you could use this on a macro level.

This is a fantastic tool. I was looking for such a toll since a long time. Finally found here. Thanks !

Outdoor Jo , thanks for the comments. Unfortunately it is not possible to determine water table levels.
