Find Altitude on Map

Determine the altitude (elevation) when a point is tapped/clicked on a map

[Map Height : Small - Medium - Large]


Use a map to determining altitude (elevation) when a point is tapped/clicked on a map. You can click/tap ad many times as required to find the elevation of multiple points.

Google Maps Find Altitude

How To Use

  1. Click on the map on a location where you wish to find the altitude
  2. The altitude will be displayed in the message box below the map and when you hover over the marker
  3. You can click to place more than one marker and return to hover over each in order to find out the altitude again
  4. Click the [Clear Map] button in order to remove all markers and start again
  5. Use the search option to find a place
  6. Click on a marker to remove it

You can also access a CSV list of latitude, longitude, altitude in meters and altitude in feet for every marker you place on the map.

Future Updates and Ideas

  • Output in location in UTM Grid coordinates
  • Allow input of location by latitude, longitude coordinates

Seems accurate. Zoomed map to find my desired location. Tapped the map to leave a marker. Scrolled down and found the elevation, latitude and longitude. Did it again with a place nearby, the difference seemed accurate. I'm very near sea level and finding an accurate elevation hasn't been easy. Until now. Thank you.

Says my address doesn't exist! I'm only lived at that address for 30 years. I'm not surprised it doesn't work, Google had my address on my neighbor's property. Took forever to get them to correct it.

What good is this when you enter an address to check your house altitude it shows your area but....wait for it.....It doesn't show or give any street names, worthless app or site. How do people qualify for these jobs.....wait for it......It starts at the top.

You can search for a lat,lng to get the map to focus on a location. 49.337957431941305, -123.10146933698354 worked when tested.

Adding longitude/latitude like 49.337957431941305, -123.10146933698354 does not work. Please fix!

manque la precision des altitudes c'est très important pour mes balades

Awesome website bro!!!
But you need to work on Accuracy

Brilliant site. Works really well. Thanks very much indeed.

add system coordinate (morroco merchich)

Ca marchait pas trop mal.... mais aujourd'hui c'est une catastrophe.... à en croire le site on construit des routes avec des pentes supérieures à 100%.... bon gros bug ou bonne grosse blague.... aucune utilité en tous cas.

used to work well. now rubbish
On 15th January 2021
Very poor precision ! You say 122 m and it is 57m
On 14th January 2021
Still some issues with no results or totally wacky ones.
By Soulvex on 7th December 2020
BE CAREFUL Using this Site .. The Accuracy is terrible - It only gives the Levels to an accuracy of 1 Meter - EVEN though the results are to many places of decimal points !! ..

How many pounds of pressure do I can at for Houston,Texas and how long for water bath canning

Need to show on maps the true locations of the true elevation points.
display /- 10meters

By Palomarbob on 3rd June 2020
I want eye elevation.
On 26th May 2020
Sorry, that's not possible to provide.
By Daft Logic on 25th May 2020
Hi, I was wondering it would be possible to get a thing that says the highest point on a line inbetween two markers?
On 24th May 2020
Site still seems to work OK for Altitude. The cumulative distances seem to be a long way out.
By SteveR on 13th May 2020
could you make it soo i can press points on the map and on the side it would write the altitude and then let me export the map as a jpg or something but save as much quality as possible
By ivan on 24th April 2020
Great tool! Thanks!
By Pota Alura on 16th January 2020
message box displays nothing at all when I hover over the marker or click on it - not much use!
On 26th December 2019
Is this site accurate?
By Redd on 13th November 2019
Looks like the free API calls run out quickly. There's 100,000 free calls every 24 hours, you'd think that was huge but I guess this site is quite popular.
By Emily B on 5th November 2019
Curiously it is now working just as good as previously. I am now getting the correct altitude for all the points I request. It's changed back to its best in the last few weeks.
I hope everyone else is getting the same result.
