algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Demonstration of the upcoming Elevation Service component. The input to this component will be a set of WSG84 coordinates. The component queries the Google Elevation API and returns the coordinate's Elevation. Note, this is quite low resolution (like what you find in Google Earth) and often times does not serve as an accurate representation of the actual Elevation. There are holes in the data, and thus at times the data is interpolated. Nonetheless, for a quick understanding of the site terrain, it can be a helpful tool.
