Get DTM height service

Hi all,

I’m looking to this example:

Is there some way to access to the service that gives the height of a certain point in a java client without using Cesium?

Thanks in advance



I have also noticed that there is a difference of more or less 50m between the ground altitude using Cesium and using Google Earth.
Why is there so much difference?


Hello Cris,

Using this method, the accuracy of the height is based on the zoom level of the camera

For a more consistent result, you can use the Ceisum.SampleTerrain function to query the terrain

If you use a higher level, the height of the point returned will be more accurate.
