The service from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center provides topographic and terrain information to complement mapping locations. It returns the elevation for a specific location, specified as latitude and longitude. Measurements come from the USGS Seamless Elevation datasets. Where multiple elevation values are available, the service returns those from the data sources with the highest resolution.
API methods support submission of a request for one or more elevation values with each location specified as a latitude-longitude pair. The API returns the best-available measure for each location denominated in either feet or meters, as specified in the request.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
