I note that there is the Google Elevation API.
I see they have an example at the bottom showing an elevation profile for a line. Is there a premade service someone has put up on a website for me to submit a line and it will return elevation values at preset distances along the line?
I have downloaded the SRTM data for the area I'm interested in and can do this using ArcGIS, but it would be good to compare it to what Google Elevation API has as well.
I see someone has done this with Mathematica, but I have never used this program and don't understand how easy it would be for a beginner to produce what they have done on the blog. General comments about this are welcome.
