Highest elevation Intermediate elevation Lowest elevation 4,000.00 meters 2,000.00 meters 1,000.00 meters 4.8125 inches

Map distance between highest and lowest elevation Distance from highest elevation to point of intermediate elevation

3.20833333 inches

Highest elevation X

Y Intermediate elvation Distance between highest and point of intermediate elevation 3.208333 inches * Point of intermediate elvation on line connecting highest and lowest elevations

Map distance between highest and lowest elevation 4.8125 inches

Z Lowest elevation
