What Is Orthometric Height?

The orthometric height is the vertical distance H along the plumb line from a place of interest to the geoid, the vertical datum that approximates mean sea level.

Orthometric height, along with other sorts of heights in Geodesy, is one of the scientific formalizations of a layperson's "height above sea level."

The current NAVD88 datum in the United States is related to a specific elevation at one point rather than to the exact mean sea level of any location.
