The Altitudes of France on Google Maps
Cartes Topographiques has created a heat map of France that shows altitude throughout the country.
La Relief du France uses a choropleth image overlay to display the altitude data. It is also possible to click anywhere on the map to get the altitude in meters at that point.
Users of the map can get an altitude chart of any straight line simply by clicking on two points on the map. The altitude chart for that line is then displayed above the map.
