Great Idea

For a non-ASTER guided elevation map, I like it. It's features are comparative to the surrounding area making it very usable. I am in the military and use this all the time. FANTASTIC for all off-road usage, mountain biking, hiking, search-and-rescue, off-road motorcycling, RECON, etc. - for estimating good routes.
Hope it enjoys continual improvement, esp. ASTER location references.

Great for Tower App drone flying.

This app is just what I needed for Solo autonomous flight with Tower App. I can check the surrounding land altitude quickly so when I program my tower flight I can be sure to stay high above trees and objects. It does not show height of objects. It does let me know the land 1mile away is 200feet higher so I need to have a steady climb for clearances. Thank You.

Nice Concept

Version 1.1

This version improved the maps, gui, and overall precision. I'm really glad to see the advancements with this app. I would still like to see a gyro-lock, but I'm really liking the improvements.

Version 1.0

I like the idea behind this application; it has lots of potential. Things I would probably include in a future version: more precision, elevation lost or gained, distances from point A to B, gyro-lock, and gui graphics/topography could be improved. It's obviously the first version and in the early stages, but cool nonetheless.
