This page is historical as of 2012. vcard4 introduced an 'altitude' component (via RFC 5870) to its GEO property which is now incorporated in h-card and h-geo. - Tantek 18:30, 23 December 2012 (UTC)


An exploration of adding elevation (altitude) information to geo data.

The Problem

Publishers of elevation information on the web could make additional use of this information (e.g. in Google Earth) with a standard format.

Altitude data in waypoints is particularly used in aviation.

Real-World Examples
