Hi all,

I'm very new to this, but I've got it all working and it's looking great.

My question is that given a latitude/longitude can I get the elevation?

I found this post: http://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2009/09/25/finding-the-elevation-at-any-location/

I'm currently trying something like this:

    [map_view zoomToLevel:113 withLat:lat lon:lon animated:YES];
    elevation.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%f", map_view.visibleAreaEnvelope.height];

But I'm worried that it's not giving me accurate information.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
