Azure Maps Elevation API is now in general availability

Published date: June 11, 2021

The Azure Maps Elevation Service, now in general availability, provides pole to pole coverage with <4M absolute and <2m relative accuracy. The elevation data represents a digital terrain model (DTM), man-made entities (e.g., buildings) are artificially flattened, and elevation is measured to the ground surface.

The API supports both GET/POST operations and provides three modes of obtaining elevation information:

  • Elevation for a given point or set of points.
  • Elevation at specified intervals within a given boundary.
  • Elevation along a given path.

To get started with Azure Maps and Azure Maps Elevation, please go to the Azure Maps documentation and, if you don’t have one already, create an Azure Maps account for free.
