Elevation for a given map point using a MapView

What is the fastest way of obtaining the elevation for a given lat/lon when using a MapView (not scene)?  I would like my elevation data to be local.  I am currently using SRTM data in tif format.  In the SceneView you can use FileElevationSource to read these directly and then call GetElevationAsync for a given map point.  I there any way to do this in the MapView?  I tried using FileElevationSource, but it threw, stating it needed to be added to a scene surface.  I'm using 10.2.7.  If this is not viable now, will this functionality be in Quartz?

Many thanks

Phil Collier.

Thank you both for your feedback. I'll forward this feature enhancement request to our team for consideration in future release.

I'm having the same issue. There should be a way to retrieve height information using only a MapView instance.

The current release of ArcGIS Runtime (100.8) now includes support for identifying cell/pixel values from raster data.
