Swedish term or phrase: höjdposition, höjddata
Positionsnoggrannheten i bilderna kommer att bli ca. 2 m. Eftersom många satelliter också kommer att ge stereobilder kan också höjdpositioner erhållas med motsvarande noggrannhet.

Det är endast SPOT satelliten som kan ge höjddata och stereobilder.

In these contexts, is "höjd" referring to the "altitude" (such as a plane or missile in the sky) or the "height" of a building on the ground?

I think it's reffering to the 'height', because for altitude is Swedish term 'altitud'.

But \'höjd\' means also \'top\' - maybe it will be better.

\"The electronic compass is an excellent addition whilst the barometric sensor helps to give you an accurate height position.\" [http://www.completeoutdoors.co.uk/pages/navig/_garmin.htm]

I hope that helps.
