If this is using the Google API, you may be hitting the max requests per day for some of the outages referenced in other comments. Unfortunately, I don't know a way around that limitation.

Elevation service failed due to: OVER_QUERY_LIMIT- this is the error I get when trying to use the tool (both chrome and IE).

Hi arun, I'm not 100% sure what you mean. Can you explain in more detail please?

Just like currency ,can we find Altitude of a location by just entering its lattitude and longitude figures in the empty boxes meant for them,without placing them onto map?

If we are talking about date, I could prefer ISO format. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601 Or it could cause confusion for people who's mother tongue is English, because they say the date in different order? :)
By RelakS on 13th August 2016

Hi the dates are correct or wrong depending on what format you are used in in your part of the world. We will be implementing a more neutral [xxth of month year] format soon to avoid this confusion.

8-8-16 Have used many times before, but today the map will not work at all? I click but get no result?

I think people should read the wiki on mean sea level before pronouncing this tool "wildly inaccurate".

can i call this from my system like a web-service?

Absolutely fascinating. Thanks.Curious, I checked Grand Banks off Newfoundland, and in some places -200 feet, yet suddenly the plunge even to 17,000 feet. You can see it on Google maps, but have no sense of depth.Even more peculiar are places on LAND which are over 1,000 feet BELOW sea level. I love exploring Google Maps, but added this to my address bar and open both beside each other to compare. LOOOVE IT. Some predict flooding of coastlines Carolinas,Georgia, New York. So I used your map depths. Also checked Challenger Deep/Mariana Trench 36,000 ft deep, and the Puerto Rico Trench almost 28,900 feet, 2 deepest trenches in the world.Fascinating tool...and gee, it is free.

if we are on a globe then why are all sea levels based of a flat earth map .. i no this due to distance and so called earth curvature calculations if you are 1200 miles inland then due to earth curvature calculations the land should be over 200miles above see level
By darren on 2nd July 2016

Unfortunately, i have found this to be wildly inaccurate as well. I tested the altitude of Genoa, VIC, which seems to be 13.7m above sea level. And then i tested the altitude of the Mallacoota foreshore, which is (according to my eyes and the location on the coast) at sea level, but the reading was 12.7m above sea level. What's the deal?
