How do I get elevation from Google Maps?
To use the elevation finder tool:
- Zoom and pan the map to find the desired location OR type an address in to the search box.
- Click on the map to place a marker.
- You will then see the estimated elevation displayed below the map.
- Click again to place further markers and find the elevation.
The vertical distance between a standard reference point, such as sea level, and the top of an object or point on the Earth, such as a mountain. At 8,850 m (29,028 ft), the summit of Mount Everest is the highest elevation on Earth.
- List of highest United States cities by state
Altitude Name State, District or Territory 10,200 feet (3109 m) Leadville Colorado 9800 feet (2987 m) Brian Head Utah 9321 feet (2841 m) Taos Ski Valley New Mexico 9062 feet (2762 m) Fox Park Wyoming
- For instance, Alaska could be regarded as the highest state because Denali, at 20,310 feet (6,190.5 m), is the highest point in the United States. However, Colorado, with the highest mean elevation of any state as well as the highest low point, could also be considered a candidate for "highest state".
- By any measure, Florida takes the prize for the flattest state in the nation because the highest point in the state is only 345 feet above sea level. Then Illinois, North Dakota, Louisiana, Minnesota and Delaware follow. Kansas merely ranks seventh in flatness.
The Earth's lowest land elevation point is at the Dead Sea, located at the border of Israel and Jordan. Its shores have an elevation of 420 meters (1,385 feet) below sea level. Elevations are usually measured in meters or feet.

- Write the percent grade, or incline, setting of your treadmill. For example, write "7 percent."
- Divide the percent grade you have written by 100 using a calculator.
- Multiply your answer by the number of miles you have run on your treadmill.
- Multiply your answer by 5,280.
- Divide your answer by 3.281.
- The 8,848 m (29,029 ft) height given is officially recognised by Nepal and China, although Nepal plans a new survey. In 1856, Andrew Waugh announced Everest (then known as Peak XV) as 8,840 m (29,002 ft) high, after several years of calculations based on observations made by the Great Trigonometric Survey.
- Absolute altitude is the height of the aircraft above the terrain over which it is flying. It can be measured using a radar altimeter (or "absolute altimeter"). Also referred to as "radar height" or feet/metres above ground level (AGL). True altitude is the actual elevation above mean sea level.
Definitions. 1. The act of assuming or being raised to an elevated position, as in elevation of the pupil (directing the gaze upward); the movement produced by a levator. Synonyms.
- The Earth's lowest land elevation point is at the Dead Sea, located at the border of Israel and Jordan. Its shores have an elevation of 420 meters (1,385 feet) below sea level. Elevations are usually measured in meters or feet.
- Medical Definition of High altitude. Altitude is defined on the following scale: High altitude: 8,000 - 12,000 feet (2,438 - 3,658 meters); Very high altitude: 12,000 - 18,000 feet (3,658 - 5,487 meters); and. Extremely high altitude: 18,000+ feet (5,500+ meters).
- Baking and Cooking at High Altitudes. At high altitudes, about 3,500 feet or more above sea level, foods bake and cook differently than if prepared at sea level. The charts below describe specific adjustments you can make when baking and cooking.
