Getting elevation by coordinates

Hi all!

Is there any source I can use to get the elevation of a given point (identified by coordinates)?
Currently I use an API from Google-Maps, but I want to use own data. I already got the rendering of the tiles and getting the town name by coordinates.
Unfortunately I didn’t found any attribute in the OSM tables with the elevation…

Thank you for your suggestions!

OSM doesn’t have elevation data in its database. Only a smal amount of notes have a "ele“ tag.

If you see maps using OSM with elevation data (EDM, e.g. SRTM) they use another source.


This is absolutly what I’m looking for! I’d like to install it on my own server, but…
Is the project currently supported? I see in GitHub the last commit is 3 years ago and getting the dataset returns a 404…
