Austrian Elevation Service / GPS-Info

 

The "Austrian Elevation Service" is a prototype of a free and open elevation service basing on a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) with 10 Meter resolution. The service is basing on many textfiles with elevation data saved in EPSG: 3857. The big advantage of this very simple approach is that every programming language can read textfiles. A database or a WMTS/WMS is not required.

Test this service and get the elevation of Seegrube/Innsbruck or write another coordinate into the fields:
