Summary
Abstract: The National Map Elevation Query Web Services Overview

The The National Map Elevation Query Web Service returns the elevation
in feet or meters for a specific latitude/longitude point from the
USGS Seamless Elevation data sets hosted at the EROS Data Center. The
elevation values returned default to the best-available (highest
resolution) data source available at the specified point. Alternately,
this service may return the value from a specified data source, or
from all data sources. If unable to find data at the requested point,
this services returns an extremely large, negative value.
