I would like to know from where Project GC knows at which elevation a cache is. For example: If you were to place a Cache in an old mine, the hight shown would probably be the hight of the ground above and not the hight of the actual Cache. Is there a way to state at which hight a certain Cache actually is?

Thanks wwwde40

In addition to Domino's answer which is from the FAQ once you read the FAQ you will realise that all examples of elevation are entirely reliant on external calculations. Groundspeak do NOT include elevations on their site so there is no definitive answer as to how high/low a cache is. Everything about elevations is an estimated calculation and will always be until Groundspeak make a change to include elevations.

Yes, as referenced Domino_67. Altitude measurement inaccurate. In the case where a cache under the ground or high above the GS had to allow editing. But it's just a figure in the statistics, I do not know whether so important ...
