JH, Thanks. Yes, the address search gets the map zoomed to that area. You then need to click or tap on the location for which you want the estimated elevation.

Saeed, it can only estimate an elevation at a single requested location and not do a search such as this.

James Thomas ... after you type in the address you have to click on the map where you want the elevation numbers from ... then at the bottom you will see your elevation ...

Hello and thank you for your great website. if there is the possibility to find a certain elevation (like 10 meters) in a selected area? thanks
By Saeed on 28th March 2017

March 24, 2017. Nothing happens when I type in a valid address and hit Enter.
By James Thomas on 24th March 2017

Oscar, yes thats correct.
By Free Map Tools on 13th March 2017

Does the meters and feet mean that number is the difference between that location and sea level?
By Oscar on 13th March 2017

Thank you for a great site. Use it for calculating property sizes for gardening. As for the elevation tool, apparently clicking on a map is hard. Good work.

How accurate is this information? Is it based off of COE measurements? could I rely on this information for survey measurements?
