I couldn't find the actualhight .
By Jhankar on 1st July 2020

I've used this for a while and it was pretty accurate but the discrepancies in height are now substantial.

This site has faulty data. It's off for my location by 500 feet (too low).

not accurate at all

46 ft. Excellent and confirmed at the city(47%u2019, Safety Harbor, Fl). Just out of highest Hurricane tidal surge. Saves quite a bit on insurance. Great sight.

Spot on great tool!

some is certainly messed up, it says my location is -99999.0ft, I'm quite sure I'm not in the centre of the Earth!

Great map tool. Helps me to plan my walks and difficulty by looking into elevations. Very easy to use. Thank you for this tool.

Je zelo dobro.

Accuracy is within 10 feet of actual, in my experience.
On 4th May 2020

Unfortunately, accuracy higher than 3-4 meters seems really hard to achieve.
By Stefan on 27th April 2020

There appears to be a problem. Map shows -32805 feet when it should be around 380 feet. Also, it used to give the difference in height over a site of 1 acre, now it doesn't. Software must have updated.?

Don't worry about the ambiguous future, just work hard for the sake of clarity

I feel the readings I'm getting for Albuquerque, NM, US are accurate based on google results I'm also finding.
By Liz on 14th April 2020
