Elevation Profiles in Google Earth

4 thoughts on “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.

  2. Interesting, you have a big head start on something I was contemplating. Can that be flipped to show you a level or downhill grade from point a to point b?

    Would like to see your commentary on that.
