    Altitude is just a weird way of setting the zoom level.

    Often you can just put anything in for altitude, but if you want to use your Location to MoveTo, then you should use a sensible altitude.

    The following article shows you how to calculate it, but you need to know your viewable area in physical units and pixels:

    I found a comfortable viewing area would result if the altitude was double the required diameter. (that is with a square viewport)
