Your current altitude

What is altitude?

Altitude, or elevation - which is often the preferred term in geography - is the height above the sea level. So if you're standing on top of a mountain, your altitude is equal to the official height of that mountain.

Please note that this website uses your geographical position (lat/lng) to look up the altitude in an external database. So, for example, if you're in a tall building that height will not be accounted for.
