For AMS airport, ARP elevation should be negative (-3.4 m), but your tool gives a positive value (+6 m)

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

Curious about lakes and resevoirs, this seems to return the elevation of the surface of the water level, not the ground level below? Is there any way to get the ground level, not surface of water? thanks
By Kevin on 18th March 2021

please make it such a way so that after putting degree decimal latitude and longitude it display elevation means Z axis value

This tool looks amazing. I have a list of 2441 zip codes that I need to find the approximate elevation of, and entering them manually one by one seems inefficient. Is there anywhere to enter a series of zip codes and get a downloadable file of the results?

Is this metres? What is the unit?
