The elevation is from mean sea level.

Not working.....
By Andy on 8th October 2017

What is the elevation measured in? Is it Ordinance Datum or Chart Datum?
On 6th October 2017

FAI, sorry, that's not possible to do.

This is a terrific UI. The elevations are displayed with 99% accuracy. Is there any way to merge Elevation Map along with Radius Around a point map?

Can anyone tell how elevation is defined here? I live in a coastal community and wish to know whether it's measured from Mean Lower Low Water(MLLW)or some other point of reference.

Why does a lower point show a higher reading.
On 18th September 2017

Is it working... can't tell. Inconsistent... maybe; really unsure. One minute I'm below sea level by 5000 now I'm above by 6... same property?

I have massively contradictory information (650' off) from several sources, including Google! The meter output seems much more likely! And just a hint, Sea level is generally stated in feet.
On 15th September 2017

good relative measure but most readings are around 3 feet to low. i have an elevation certificate that shows over 9ft. and this app shows around 6.

Due to recent weather events the elevation service has been getting a lot of traffic. We only have a set quota of free usage before there is a cost to provide it - which isn't practical for a free-to-use website.
The usage quotas are reset every day at midnight West Coast time so if you get on early in the day (USA time) it should work.
Another option is to use our iOS app that has an elevation finder with a separate quota that isn't yet getting max-ed out. See : https://itunes.apple.com/app/free-map-tools/id1075853833?mt=8.
