  1. elevation especially above sea level or above the earth's surface; "the altitude gave her a headache"
  2. the perpendicular distance from the base of a geometric figure to the opposite vertex (or side if parallel)
  3. elevation: angular distance above the horizon (especially of a celestial object)
  4. Altitude or height is defined based on the context in which it is used (aviation, geometry, geographical survey, sport, and more). As a general definition, altitude is a distance measurement, usually in the vertical or "up" direction, between a reference datum and a point or object. ...
  5. Altitude was the only studio album to date released by ALT, the grouping of Tim Finn, Andy White & Liam O'Moanlai. Also released was a live recording simply called Bootleg.
  6. In astronomy, a celestial coordinate system is a coordinate system for mapping positions on the celestial sphere. ...

  9. Altitude is a fictional character from the toyline, comic books and cartoon series.
  10. (ALTITUDES) The man is in his altitudes, i.e. he is drunk.
  11. Altitude is measured with an atmospheric air pressure sensor. Altitude is shown as ascended and descended meters/feet and uphill/downhill steepness in percentages and grades.
  12. In meteorology, the measure of a height of an airborne object in respect to a constant pressure surface or above mean sea level.
  13. elevation above or below a reference datum, as defined in Federal Information Processing Standard 70-1. See also elevation.

  16. The height of the towfish above the seabed, which is typically measured in feet or metres. Proper towfish altitude is important for acceptable seabed backscattering and, of course, to avoid seabed collisions. ...
  17. distance of a point from a chosen reference surface along a line perpendicular to that surface (e.g., height above mean sea level) [ISO 19116 and ISO 6709]
  18. position on the celestial sphere that is the number of degrees an object is above the nearest horizon. Varies from 0° at horizon to 90° at zenith. Vertical position of an object.
  19. the vertical distance above a certain level, usually sea level or ground level.
  20. The vertical distance between a point and a reference datum surface such as sea level.
  21. Height in space of an object or point relative to sea level or ground level.
  22. The height above sea level of a given location. Density corrections for altitude are made using the following formula, where Z is the feet above sea level. Density (Alt) = Density (Std) x [1 – (6.73 x 10-6) Z]5.258
  23. The vertical angle between the horizon and the sun, with the observer at the vertex of the angle. Also called elevation angle. Angles range from 0 (on the horizon) up to 90 degrees (at the zenith).
  24. The Shuttle’s vertical distance from the surface of Earth. The altitude is reported during launch, orbit, and landing.
  25. The height in feet or meters above sea level. For precision in determining the performance of an aircraft, this must be corrected for the deviation of the meteorological conditions from that of the International Standard Atmosphere. ...
