Doesn't work. Results say my house is 10000 meters beLow sea level, which it is not.

I'm sure we reside at least 200 to 300 metres above sea level but this tells me we are below sea level, Rubbish!

Those who are comparing GPS altitude should remember that the GPS system cannot work out altitude as accurately as the lat. and long. positions.

Seems to work, ...sort of? but I know for a fact that the road that goes past our house goes pretty steep up the hill before it reaches the crest of the hill and the difference in elevation will defintely be more than a mere 15 meters. I know it says estimate but it's not a very good estimate, guess I'm going to have to do it the old fashioned way to be accurate, how time consuming, grrr!

Incorrect. Using GPS it gave my neighbors as the same elevation as myself -- one is 3-5ft higher than me and the other is 3 ft lower. It also gave a higher elevation further SW down the road but the road runs downhill from me.

Hi. How do I get the contour lines for the same area pls?
By Ramesh on 10th October 2019

This tool gives the same elevation to areas I know are lower. This is not accurate.

Is this elevation above Mean Sea Level (MSL) or relative to the WGS84 ellipse (the datum used by GPS)?
By Paul Milligan on 26th September 2019

how to check elevations for a continuous strectch? is it downloadable into excel or pdf format?
By aryan on 17th September 2019

If you change the drop down list to Autosuggest, that is what you can do.

Wish I could just type in a city to get the elevation.
