Note: Use of the Google Elevation API for standard users is subject to a limit of 2,500 requests per day. In each given request you may query the elevation of up to 512 locations and 10 requests per second. This limit is enforced by Google to prevent abuse and/or repurposing of the Elevation API, and this limit may be changed in the future without notice. Please visit google developer page for more information. GOOPO trys to optimize the data usage due to this limitation but you need to pay attention to the selection of sampling number (Data Point), specially in grid query, to avoid recieving error message from Google server.

GOOPO is a free web-based program which uses Google Elevations API to provide elevation data across Earth. By feeding latitude and longitude, this program will return a list of data in the preferred format (text or dxf). This Program has been written by java, html as well as php to make it accessible directly from the internet.
GOOPO is non-commercial and free to use. If you have questions or comments, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit my personal web page to find out about the other free programs/codes or my experiences and research interests.
