Is this elevation above mean sea level, above NAVD88, above mean high water level above mean low water level, above NGVD29? What is the reference point? Thank you.

All my streets are named in some sort of middle eastern script. I kind of needed it to stay in English.

We cannot help from this time everywhere or all time Why. We want to search elevation of place. give chance

Thank you Freemaptools, it works. Notes: On Mozilla Firefox on Android Nougat the "estimate elevation" button is hidden when the page is initialy loaded. I have to switch option in the option box multiple times to make the "estimate elevation" button visible. Once the "estimate elevation" button is visible I select lat-long option and then press that button, and then the elevation data is shown right bellow the map. I don't know if that was the page intended design or not but since I read several user comments of the page not working so I put this notes for other users who perhaps experiencing similar problem.
