French term or phrase: Altimétrie et consultation d\'altitude
"La consultation d'altitude permet de connaître l'altitude d'un point quelconque sur la BDD terrain."
Altimetrie I think is Altimetry but would consultation d'altitude be altitude consultation?

Elevation
Explanation:
That is, "The elevation query makes it possible to determine the elevation of any point on the BDD field (or "terrain")." -- I recall you had asked earlier about "BDD"; in this context, the use of "consultation" ("query") implies the presence of a database, which would fit with "BDD" ("base de donnees," i.e., "database"). If so, you could say "...elevation of any point in the field (or "terrain") database." -- Hope this helps!
