I need to calculate the gradient in major European highways. Fot this I need altitude data for each highway, let's say every 100 meters. Are there such kind of data publicly available? If not, I am also interested in commercial ones.

I have already tried to use DEM GeoTIFF images, but since the DEM depicts the "bare earth", they are not accurate enough for my purpose.

    If it’s open data that you seek then I think the place to ask is the Open Data Stack Exchange.

  • What's wrong with the shuttle SRTM data? Other, than that it is a bit outdated.

    To my understanding the SRTM data show the "bare earth", while the highways may reside in a different "layer". For example, a highway is almost level even if it passes through a hilly territory. Bridges and tunnels are also missing from the DEM. Am I wrong? Does the SRTM has such details?

  • GrapHopper API has routes with Elevation (source graph.elevation.provider=srtm) see docs.graphhopper.com/#operation/getRoute
