Description

*** New iPad Release Campaign! 50% OFF NOW! ***
Geo Elevation is a powerful tool to build a cross-sectional elevation chart from any paths/points on the map with a few clicks. Simply create a path and click on "Get Elevation" you will see a nice chart.

How does Mt. Everest look like if you cut through the peak, and view it from the side? Try to draw a path from your place to the nearest shoreline. See how slope decline as it approach the ocean? How about investingating the Mariana Trench's steep slope, which goes down to the deepest place on the Earth?

In addition, the line of the elevation profile is clickable to indicate corresponding location on the path that you draw.
