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
