What reference data you are using for Elevation information
By Parveen on 07/01/2016

Hi Rodger, what format did you input the lat and long?
By Free Map Tools on 27/12/2015

Putting in Lat. & Long. to start had me in the North Sea but after clicking on the map it came up with a realistic height and very similar Lat. & Long. Could there be some confusion over degrees East or West because it seemed as far East of Greenwich as we are West.

Need to reference your datum.

Need to reference what datum you are using, otherwise this is useless.

Hi Chris, Can you try deleting your temporary internet files and load the page again please?

For some reason the elevation finder isn't currently working, any chance of a fix please as it's a very useful tool.
