Altitude vs Elevation

Xert shows the ‘altitude’ for a ride, where I think the term should be changed out for ‘elevation’.

Both terms are measured relative to mean sea level. However, altitude is used to describe the height of an object which is ABOVE the surface of the earth while elevation the height of an object or a place ON the earth.

Or maybe its just my nitpicky mind, but it gets me every time I look at it and think, “but I wasn’t in an airplane, I was riding my bike.”
