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)
  • Jonathan de Ferranti DEM1
  • Jonathan de Ferranti DEM3

All online services limit the usage of their service:
