Azure Maps Elevation Service API
News|17 June 2021
Microsoft has announced that the Azure Maps Elevation API is now Generally Available.
For any given point on the Earth’s surface, the Elevation API returns its elevation measured from the mean sea level. The API will provide pole to pole coverage with <4M absolute and <2m relative accuracy. The elevation data uses a digital terrain model (DTM), man-made entities (e.g., buildings) are artificially flattened and elevation is measured to the ground surface.
Use cases and API types:
Azure Maps Elevation API is designed to make it easy for developers to build various scenarios leveraging elevation data. The following options are offered along with POST methods to support input of large data.
- Get Elevation for Points
- Get Elevation for Bounding Box
- Get Elevation for Path/Profile
