Azure Maps Elevation API is now in general availability
Dato for publicering: 11 juni, 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.
