Method for getting elevation data

Is there any way to get map elevation data, preferably as a heightmap or something similar? I can see how to do it for buildings by grabbing the height data, but I’m actually looking for height above sea level for all land and am not really interested in buildings.

I’m pretty sure that the data exists somewhere because there’s a pdf from 2012 claiming that it does:

Hi Przemek,

Thanks for the quick response!

I did see that post, but it stated that it wasn’t possible to get the elevation at a specific point, so I was hopeful that there might be a more general solution such as a heightmap (although if one could get a heightmap, it should be possible to work out the elevation of a single point).

I’ll take your response to mean that there isn’t a solution for heightmaps.


That is correct. We don’t provide height maps.
