Elevation Profiles in Google Earth

  1. The problem with Google Earth elevation profiles is the vertical exaggeration. When looking at whole continents or even whole states/provinces, it’s not too bad. But when looking at a small area of, for example, the Prairies, the elevation profile generated by Google Earth makes them look like the Himalayas due to the extreme vertical exaggeration applied – and I have yet to find a work around.
