I realize the experts might be out hunting, but I am having an issue with Google Earth (Pro) on my "work" computer.

The ground elevation will not follow my cursor. It stays at zero. (See bottom of screen shot). I have toggled all of my places off and still in error. (I restarted application also) Thoughts? THX in advance.

Z, my guess is you only hunt at very low elevation and very flat ground!

Make sure your terrain layer is turned on

How do I turn on elevation in Google Earth?

Explore the slope, elevation, and distance along a path.

Open Google Earth Pro.

Draw a path or open an existing path.

Click Edit Show Elevation Profile.

An elevation profile will appear in the the lower half of the 3D Viewer. If your elevation measurement reads "0," make sure the terrain layer is turned on.

Terrain layer is right. If that doesn't fix it, uninstall/reinstall.

Take it off North Dakota. ;-)

Thanks John! Somehow the terrain layer was clicked off.

Scoot- Not many elk at sea level. (And you know where I live so the elevation profile would be accurate!)

John, are you hunting Bighorns in central Minnesota there? I recognize that spot! :)
