This Altimeter determines the height using a digital elevation model. ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) provides digital elevation data with an accuracy of ±10m.
Alternatively, you can also only use GPS for height determination. The GPS altitude is less accurate.
ASTER only delivers the topographical elevation. Example: When ballooning, ASTER does not provide the height of the balloon, but the elevation of the underlying ground.

What's New in Version 1.9.5
Switch between decimal (40.44611, -79.98222) and geographic coordinates (40° 26′ 46″ N 79° 58′ 56″ W) by tapping on coordinates display.
Not a bad little app ...
Not a professional land surveyor so i cant comment a 100% on its accuracy - but - just a couple of touch points i measured using it & then comparing it to what i could find using google searches - seems to be fairly accurate. Bought it specifically to set my Citizen watch which has a builtin altimeter - needs to be set initially & then it calculates its own values - the two seem to get along nicely - so again - it seems to be fairly accurate (the app)
I don't use the app much but it was the best of all that I have tried. The aster doesn't seem to work that often so I use the gps more. I plan on getting readings form the bottom to the top of the lifts at the resorts I board at. Hopefully if the gps isn't accurate it will be the same error at both locations so it won't matter. Otherwise it is kinda cool to know about how high you are.
Beautiful GUI and works!
The user interface is near photo-realistic perfection. Only mistake I would point out (since it is nearly perfect otherwise) is that the small globe icons next to the latitude and longitude numerical displays are reversed. The globe with the arrow showing direction latitudinally is next to the Longitude number and vice versa.
