Comments For This Page

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

I've used this tool successfully (via gps), and after receiving the exact value from city hall, I found it to be relatively accurate.

This is a very useful tool for me! Thanks in advance

would really help if it also had a distance-measuring tool (so you get both elevation change and distance for the same two points)

Loved this site when it worked. Now there doesn't seem to be a good way to search by address.

This tool still does not appear to be working. Looking at a site in Temecula which I know is above sea level and map is showing large negative values.

I am from Sri Lanka. I checked most of the local places. All of the elevation calculations are wrong.

My house is on a hill with 3 acres of land sloping away. The map shows it to be flat, so not accurate.

James, it should be working again now.

The tool appears damaged/broken. When trying to input coordinates, pressing enter, then clicking on the map beside the input coordinates marker, the elevation shown has extremely large discrepancies.

I can clearly look down the hill into the valley where my sister lives, according to your map she's 5 metres higher than my house. Whats going wrong?
