QGIS Elevation Plugin


The QGIS Elevation Plugin obtains point elevations using the Google Maps Elevation Service and displays them in Google Maps.


Use of the extension requires acceptance of the Google Maps API Terms of Service

It's a QGIS plugin, so Quantum GIS is required.


The QGIS Elevation Plugin can be installed from the QGIS Plugin Repository.
