What is MAXIMUM ELEVATION FIGURE? What does MAXIMUM ELEVATION FIGURE mean? MAXIMUM ELEVATION FIGURE meaning - MAXIMUM ELEVATION FIGURE definition - MAXIMUM ELEVATION FIGURE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Maximum elevation figure or MEF is a type of VFR altitude which indicates the height of the highest feature within a quadrangle area. It is of interest to pilots, who want to be aware of the highest mountain peaks and tall towers nearby, so that they can fly above them to avoid controlled flight into terrain. ("Features" includes terrain, trees, towers, and other obstacles.) In a VFR context, this altitude is commonly referred to as a "quadrantal altitude" (not to be confused with an IFR minimum sector altitude or "quadrantal" altitude.) Unlike the Minimum safe altitude used for IFR flight, the MEF does not include any margin for aircraft clearance above the terrain nor for altimeter error. In the US, the Federal Aviation Administration issues sectional charts. Each rectangular area covering one degree of latitude and one degree of longitude is divided into four smaller areas called quadrangles (in accordance with the World Geographic Reference System, or GEOREF), each spanning half a degree of latitude and half a degree of longitude. Each quadrangle has its MEF printed in it in thousands and hundreds of feet above mean sea level. For example, 105, means that the highest elevation is 10,500 feet within that quadrangle. MEFs are determined by taking the point of highest elevation within a quadrangle, adding 100 feet for vertical error, then adding the height of the highest obstacle in the quadrangle or 200 feet, whichever is higher, then rounding up to the next hundred feet.

(An Accurate Altitude measurement). An app you always need to measure the pressure and height of buildings above sea level.Use this Altitude measurement tool to measure building heights. Height of buildings from ground level to top floor may be cannot measure with a GPS because of inaccurate altitude units. Question Is possible Measuring my altitude above sea level accurately ? I live in a building which sits very high near the top of a hill. I estimate the ground level of the building to be around 700 feet, I live on the 13th floor, so my altitude is approximately 800 ~ 850 feet. I would like to get an accurate measurement (correct to +- 10 feet). How I did the measurement ? ★ Measure the ground level altitude at a park with digital altitude meter ★ Estimate the height of each floor ★ Using a GPS unit in the flat would produce inaccurate results use digital altitude meter ★ GPS units are inheritly inaccurate at altitude (compared to lateral position) ★ I cannot access other floors other than the one I live ★ I have a good view of the city. By looking at a map, I can accurately calculate my ground-level distance to certain sea-level landmarks. These landmarks are some 5 km away. ★ I would like to minimize the cost of purchasing special equipment.

Just how high is Mount Everest? Mount Everest is located on the border between Tibet and Nepal in the Himalayan mountain range. In 1921, the first ever climb of Everest was attempted, since then there have been 4,469 different people to complete the journey. Unfortunately during that time there have been 282 people that never left the mountain. The deadly terrain and high altitude certainly make Mount Everest extremely difficult to climb, but just how high is it? Watch the video to learn more. Did you realize just how high Mount Everest is?

Most people who visit Machu Picchu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d09AwPp5nag) go through the beautiful city of Cusco, which is over 11,000 feet above sea level. Altitude sickness can be an issue in either place so I made this video on how to prevent and treat altitude sickness, with the Cusco Cathedral in the background. I had put off my trip to Peru for years due to the fact that I suffered altitude sickness once before in the U.S. and didn't want to go through that again. However, even though it did hit me in Peru, it was not as nearly as bad as I anticipated, due to the precautions I took.

Full three part video series and show notes found here: http://stellaculinary.com/podcasts/video/high-altitude-baking-cooking-the-science-tips-tricks As most of you are already aware, cooking at altitude will effect the food you're preparing, sometimes causing undesirable results. Food items that heavily rely on water's boiling point, such as pasta, potatoes, and braising meat, will simply take longer to cook since the boiling point of water is reduced at altitude. Cakes, breads, and pastries also have a tendency to dry out, crack, and deflate starting at around 3,000 feet (914 meters). To understand why this happens, you must first grasp the science behind water. When you stop to think for a moment, a lot of cooking has to do with controlling water in its various states. Since most items you cook contain water, or will require a water based cooking method, understanding how water acts at altitude is the first step to mastering high altitude cooking. To master cooking and baking at altitude, the first concept you must understand is atmospheric pressure. When you're standing at any given point on the earth, you have air above you. This air has a weight, and the downward force caused by the ever-present weight of air, is known as atmospheric pressure. It makes sense then if you're standing at sea level, which has an elevation of zero, you will have more air above you, thus more atmospheric pressure, than if you were at a higher elevation. Now the next concept you need to understand is... Continue reading: http://stellaculinary.com/podcasts/video/high-altitude-baking-cooking-the-science-tips-tricks

The Big Island of Hawaii is one of few places where you gain so much elevation in so little time. We rented jeeps and drove from sea level to the top of the mountain. Then we just enjoyed the rest of family vacation snorkeling, off-roading, and lounging by the pool. I shot most of this on the DJI Osmo Pocket. While there was a bit of a learning curve, it was really fun to get high quality footage from such a small device.

Old Elevation Marker: Scenes from Mt. Evans and the Highest Paved road in the Lower 48 States. Up to the Peak and Summit of Mount Evans on a beautiful fall afternoon in Colorado. SEE More Things in Colorado at http://www.YouTube.com/AboutColorado We stopped at Echo Lake Lodge for a snack and to see the Gift Shop, up the Mountain to Mount Goliath and the wonderful Trees, to Summit Lake, right next to the Mountain Goats enjoying their afternoon meal, and up to the Vista to the Highest Hiking Trail in the US. Mount Evans is a 14,265 feet (4,348 m) mountain in the Front Range region of the Rocky Mountains, in Clear Creek County, Colorado. It is one of 54 fourteeners (mountains with peaks over 14,000 feet (4,300 m)) in Colorado, and the closest fourteener to Denver. It is often compared to Pikes Peak - another Front Range fourteener - which it exceeds in elevation by 154 ft (50 m). The peak is one of the characteristic Front Range peaks, dominating the western skyline of the Great Plains along with Pikes Peak, Longs Peak, and nearby Mount Bierstadt. Mount Evans can be seen from over 100 miles away to the east, and many miles in other directions. Mount Evans dominates the Denver Metropolitan Area skyline, rising over 9,000 feet above the area. Mount Evans can be seen from points south of Castle Rock, up to (65 miles (105 km) south) and as far north as Fort Collins (95 miles (153 km) north), and from areas near Limon (105 miles (169 km) east).

Flying drones at 14,000 feet above sea level. Dang gina. Mr Drone survived the test, swimmingly! I thought for sure that was the end of the drone, but the wind cooperated on top of Mt Bierstadt! I believe I took the drone 1200 feet away from the controller to go film Sawtooth heading toward Mount Evans. I probably could have gone further, but since it was my first time flying a drone at 14,000 feet above sea level, I thought that was good enough for this crispy Colorado fall day.....sometimes you gotta know to call it in order to live and fight for another day.

Believed to be the highest point reached by a hobby drone, the footage shows the beautiful curvature of the Earth become more and more apparent as the plucky drone shakes and buzzes from the impact the increasing altitude, rising up above the clouds. Due to strict laws on altitudes, previous reports of the highest-ever drone flight have claimed drones have reached heights of around 15,000 feet - but Denis Koryakin, from Serbia, was determined to far eclipse this. Having prepared his tiny one-kilogram drone for months - and undertaken many practices attempts - Denis decided to push for the extreme altitude on March 9, 2018, roughly 10 kilometers away from the city of Strezhevoy. **To use or license this video please contact [email protected]** Company Information: Caters Clips is owned and operated by Caters News Agency Ltd, an international multimedia content provider.

This remarkable event challenges up to 40 teams of two or three ultrarunners – running TOGETHER as duos or trios for the duration, NOT in a relay – to tackle an unimaginable traverse of Southern California deserts and mountains. The route covers 81 miles (130km) from Salton City (elevation 234 feet / 71m below sea level) to Palomar Mountain, the almost tallest mountain in San Diego County (elevation 5500 feet / 1676m.) Eight of the 81 race miles pass through Anza-Borrego State Park on a single track trail known as the California Riding and Hiking Trail from near Borrego Springs to near Ranchita, creating a race route which is a mix of road and trail. There is a total elevation gain of over 9000 feet (2740m). The six previous editions were received with wide acclaim. The seventh edition will be held April 28-29, 2019!

This video is part of a series on wilderness navigation and orienteering. See the complete series on our YouTube channel, or at our website, www.croc.org When looking at elevation and contours, there are three key terms we need understand. The contour line, the contour interval, and index contour. Let's start with the contour line. Imagine you’re on a small island in the ocean. The high point of your island is about 35 feet, and it's a few hundred feet around at the water’s edge. Let's also imagine that you have a really big piece of chalk. Now, imagine yourself walking from sea level up to an elevation of 10 feet. You now walk completely around the island at 10 feet of elevation, drawing a mark every few steps with the chalk. You walk more or less in a circle, and arrive back at your exact starting position in a few minutes. You changed direction, walking north, east, south, and west all around the island, but you stayed on the same 10 foot elevation line the entire time. Now, you walk uphill 10 more feet to the 20 foot elevation, and repeat the previous process. You again walk around the island at the 20 foot contour line, leaving a trail of chalk marks. You repeat this one more time, walking uphill 10 more feet to the 30 foot line, and walking around and marking what little remains of the island at elevation 30 feet. Now, you've drawn three lines. Each loop is 10 feet higher than the preceding one, and all the loops are getting smaller as you get towards the top of the island. A bird’s eye view of your island is on the right, which is a perfect contour map of your island. So, this gives us a definition of a contour line - a continuous line of constant elevation. The second of our three terms is a contour interval. An interval is the elevation difference between each contour line. In our example with the island, the interval was 10 feet. Intervals can be in meters or feet, and can be different on every map. On the left is a small scale map from Canada, with an interval of 50 meters. On the right is a 7 1/2 minute map from the US Geological Survey, with interval of 40 feet. Sometimes the interval is printed right on the map, and sometimes you have to figure it out yourself. Contour intervals are almost always multiples of 5, such as 5, 10, 20, 40 or 80. The interval chosen by the mapmaker depends on how steep the terrain is. Intervals may range from 5 feet in very flat areas, like Florida, to 150 or more feet very steep terrain or in small-scale maps. Usually in mountainous areas, the interval is 40 feet. Now, let's have a look at our third key term, the index contour. Here we see a map of the Emmons Glacier on Mt. Rainier. A little quick math shows us that these lines are 200 feet apart. So, knowing this, we can determine the contour interval if it's not printed on the map. To find the interval, we take the vertical distance between index contours and divide by five. Here, 200 feet divided by 5 gives us a contour interval of 40 feet. Now, let's figure out the elevations for each contour line between 4400 and 4600 feet. First, we need to figure out the contour interval. The contour interval is 40 feet. 200 feet between the marked index contours, divided by 5. We add a 40 feet to 4400, and we have the elevation of the next higher contour line. Again, we add 40 feet on to the previous line, and we get 4480. Add 40 feet onto the previous line, we get 4520. And finally, adding 40 feet onto the previous line, we get our last line of 4560. Once you know what the contour interval is, you can find the elevation of any point on your map. Here's how to do it. What is the elevation of Camp Schurman? First, we need to find the contour interval. 200 feet between the index lines divided by 5 gives us in an interval of 40 feet. What's the contour interval here? The index lines are 50 feet apart. Dividing 50 by 5 gives us an interval of 10 feet. What's the contour interval here? The index lines are 100 feet apart. Dividing 100 by 5 gives us an interval of 20 feet. Summary - 1 - All of the points on a contour line have the same elevation. 2 - Contour lines never cross each other. 3 - Index contour lines are printed in a bold, usually every fifth line. 4 - Some, but not all, index contours have an elevation printed on them. 5 - Dividing the elevation change between index contours by five gives you the contour interval. 6 - The contour interval is the real world change in elevation between each contour line. 7 - Sometimes this is printed on the map, and sometimes you have to figure it out yourself. 8 - When you know the contour interval, you can determine the elevation of any point on your map.
