GeocachingHeight: Suggest using Open Elevation API #38
The geocaching Height script is no longer working here.
I suggest to use the "Open elevation API".
Tested OK here, just needed to also update the "@connect" in the user script header.
Thanks in advance for reading and considering this issue.
Thanks for pointing out the problem. I had a look at the Open Elevation API, but I think I will try using the GeoNames Aster GDEM service first. That offers data at 90m horizontal resolution; Open Elevation only seems to give 250m resolution.
If the script starts maxing out the free limit for GeoNames, I'll switch to Open Elevation. That doesn't seem to have a usage limit.
