ElevationLineService API gives back an integer?


#1

Hi, I am testing the elevation line service api, and it keeps giving me back integers as elevation value:
https://openrouteservice.org/dev/#/api-docs/elevation/line/post

However, https://maps.openrouteservice.org/directions shows elevation to one digit after the integer. So I would expect I can have this information through the API as well. Is there an option to receive more precise data through the API?

Hi,

it could in theory. However, there’s little point as this is SRTM data, having errors in the range of multiple meters. ORS does it, but actually shouldn’t tbh.

Thank you Nils :slight_smile:
