Elevation Services

RouteConverter uses external elevation services to lookup the elevation information for a GPS position. This elevation information is visible in the position list and the elevation profile.

The following elevation services exist:

  • <Automatic>
  • geonames.org (online)
  • Google Maps (online)
  • Jonathan de Ferranti DEM1
  • Jonathan de Ferranti DEM3


<Automatic> is the best choice unless you know, what differentiates the elevation services. It queries offline services with best accuracy and highest data quality first and tries to find a result.


geonames.org and Google Maps are marked as (online) since they require an Internet connection. Google Maps is only available in the RouteConverter Online Edition. All other services are available in both editions.

All online services limit the usage of their service:
