Extract elevation from google earth

Recommended Posts

Hi

recently i tried many times to extract elevation from google earth but it seems it's out of the question.

so i'm hesitated that whether i did missed something to do,or maybe again I gotta use other options to extract elevation.

thanks s lot.

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, Google Earth doesn't return an elevation value so it defaults to zero. You're not doing anything wrong, it's a limitation of Google Earth.

On a side note, you can now extract elevations through the RockWare free online converter app: www.rockware.com/freesoftware Click on the "build-your-own" menu item then check the box on the left that says "Enable Manual Data Collection". You'll get latitude, longitude and elevation. The elevation has varying precision depending on the google database for that area.
