I just got back from Alaska and was trying to do altitude lookups on the GPS coordinates for my photos.  NONE of them are working.  Does MapQuest not have altitudes for far northern latitudes?  Is there a way to get HoudahGeo to lookup these altitudes for far northern latitudes?

It appears that MapQuest does not have any altitude data for that area.

HoudahGeo can actually access GeoNames web services. This is not supported and intentionally not documented.
If you wish to give it a try:

- Create an account with
- Enable the account to use web services
- Quit HoudahGeo
- Launch /Applications/Utilities/
- Enter the following (substitute the actual geonames user name):

defaults write com.houdah.HoudahGeo geoNamesUsername YOUR_USER_NAME

- Hit return
