ElevatAR is a small application for testing purposes. It compares the inertial GPS elevation with different elevation models available in the internet. The application can track a path and combines the elevation values (inertial GPS and requested ones) in a single graph.

A server, demo available at, is implemented as a message-oriented middleware, which combines several elevation services for a single request.

It is possible to export a tracked path in a .csv format via e-mail.
