Elevation / HeightMap
Find elevation of any point of earth!
Use your map to determine altitude easy with this app or use your device's GPS capability to get raw elevation data of your current location.
There are three main modes in this app.
1. Elevation API
Get elevation from Google API
Pick any location on earth. Press "+" button to fetch elevation data
2. Range mode
Press "Graph" button to enable range mode. This will draw a 2d graph showing altitude of terrain between two points on the map
3. GPS Mode
Press "Triangle" button to begin using GPS mode. The app will use your device's current location to get raw elevation data. (This is useful when not standing at ground level, above building, etc)
1. What is this app source/reference of elevation you use in this App?
Short answer: Google Maps Elevation API
The Google Maps Elevation API provides elevation data for all locations on the surface of the earth, including depth locations on the ocean floor (which return negative values). In those cases where Google does not possess exact elevation measurements at the precise location you request, the service will interpolate and return an averaged value using the four nearest locations. Elevation values are expressed relative to local mean sea level (LMSL).
2. My elevation is not accurate?!
In those cases where Google does not possess exact elevation measurements at the precise location you request, the service will interpolate and return an averaged value using the four nearest locations.
Please use GPS mode to measure elevation with satellite. This will also helps when you want to measure height above tall structure.
In GPS mode. Elevation results may fluctuate from quality of the signal.
