    Re: ISO latitude/longitude standard formats
    From: Victor Reijs

    Hello Paul,
    
    They also specify altitude. I thought that the word 'altitude' was used
    for the number of degrees about the horizon. But here it is 'height'!
    Can someone tell me when to use the word 'height' and 'altitude'? I am
    not a native English speaker...
    
    All the best,
    
    
    Victor
