Elevation error in profile stats

0 votes
70 views

There appears to be a discrepancy in how elevation is computed.

In one area of my profile, it shows three caches found with elevations over 10,000 feet; however, just below, it shows that I have found 24 over 10,000 feet.  Both cannot be true.

As I already commented on the original question (http://project-gc.com/qa/?qa=6280/how-elevation-is-computed-which-srtm-tiles-are-used&show=9397 ):
You read the Elevation chart wrong. There is "< 10000" (below 10k), which is obviously confusing that there are not shown caches above 10k. It is not an issue with metric units, where your founds fit under "< 5000".

Though it should be fixed by adding another column with ">10k", because it might be misleading as above.
Apparently so.

It seems I need another cup of coffee.  Thanks.
