This site is really off. We are at least 500 feet above sea level and the map claims we are at 246 feet.

Kevin, this tool is intentionally kept straightforward in terms of displaying the estimated elevation at a particular location. Any enhancement to this that leads to a report / conclusion / judgement that is used for making decisions is something that we wish to avoid. Most users will understand that a free estimation tool has no liability or warranty, but there will always be someone with a grievance that will want to pass on financial liability. For that reason we keep it straightforward.

Is it possible to use or add a tool that would reflect FEMA Flood zones and let a user get an approximate idea what the difference would be similar to an Elevation Certificate that is currently determined by an Engineer or surveyor? Curremtly it costs up to 2K for that info.TKS

For AMS airport, ARP elevation should be negative (-3.4 m), but your tool gives a positive value (+6 m)
By Zainal ABIDIN on 8th April 2021

-9999 would appear for areas not covered or perhaps in the oceans. We do not present data below sea level.
