You know we're bored when this topic appears.  :hysterical:  You can pinpoint your location and it will tell you the elevation here.

 

I live at 247 feet or 75 metres (on the other side of the coast range)

 

Just for fun: There's also this other neat site called HeyWhatsThat and it shows you an elevation change graph for a path you plot: http://www.heywhatsthat.com/profiler.html

It's pretty interesting. :)

Which rounds out to 144 feet. That's pretty average, especially if you live near oceans or seas.

That's the elevation of the foothills of the coast range here.

That's a pretty big range, especially in width...  :blink:

According to the link, I'm  390.640 m / 1281.629 feet which is lower than I expected.

I use to live in Colorado which was 1714.630 m / 5625.427 feet. Didn't realize how far I'd fallen.. :blink:
