Hi,

I would like to know how I can get the altitude of a point defined by its coordinates?

Is it possible in gmap.net?

 

Thanks

You can also use the free version

i presume 2020 summer ;} or later

google spit on my project, i have no passion for their services..

Oh yeah, I remember.
I thought that would help providers to solve the problem with google. I figured that you'd moved out of the provider for google project, leaving users of your control (perhaps aided by a document from which to copy and paste) the provider implementation. Besides, I think the problem with Goggole was focused on the tiles of the map, then calls the bees were lawful.

you figured wrong, nothing changed, and i even added direction service support, because it was the right thing to do anyway ;}

and its easy to add elevation support, but i hope for some action of volunteers ;}

Course providers are much more flexible than the previous solution.
I can do without the elevation of the support for my immediate needs, I can not promise anything, but if I can do it for me, I will be happy to share it.
