Enlargeable U.S. map with state and territory high points shown as red dots and low points as green squares except where low point is a shoreline.
Enlargeable map of the 50 U.S. states by mean elevation.

This list includes the topographic elevations of each of the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories.[1]

The elevation of a geographic area may be stated in several ways. These include:

  1. The maximum elevation of the area (high point);[a]
  2. The minimum elevation of the area (low point);[b]
  3. The arithmetic mean elevation of the area (statistical mean elevation);[c]
  4. The median elevation of the area (statistical 50% elevation);[d] and
  5. The elevation range of the area.[e]

All topographic elevations are adjusted to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). All geographic coordinates are adjusted to the World Geodetic System of 1984 (WGS 84). The mean elevation for each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico are accurate to the nearest 100 feet (30 m). Mean elevation data is not available for the other U.S. territories.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b A high point may be (1.) a topographic summit, or (2.) a point on a border.
  2. ^ a b A low point may be (1.) the border crossing of a gulch, stream, or river; or (2.) the shore of a reservoir, lake, or ocean; or (3.) the bottom of an endorheic basin. The elevation of a stream, river, reservoir, or lake will vary seasonally. The bottom of an endorheic basin may fill with water.
  3. ^ a b The mean elevation of an area is the arithmetic average of all point elevations in the area.
  4. ^ The median elevation of an area is the median of all point elevations in the area.
  5. ^ a b The elevation range of an area is the maximum elevation minus the minimum elevation.
  6. ^ Coordinates are adjusted to the World Geodetic System of 1984 (WGS 84).
  7. ^ Alaska has the highest point in North America and the greatest elevation range of any U.S. state.
  8. ^ The summit of Denali is the highest point in the United States and all of North America. Denali is both the third most topographically prominent summit and the third most topographically isolated summit on Earth. Denali is the highest point in the entire Arctic Ocean Basin.
  9. ^ Mount Magazine is the highest summit of the Ozarks.
  10. ^ California has the lowest point in North America. California also has the highest point and greatest elevation range of any U.S. state except Alaska.

  12. ^ The Badwater Basin, an endorheic basin in Death Valley, is the lowest point in the United States and all of North America. The Salton Sea, an endorheic basin with the lowest water level in North America, is currently near the −239.6-foot (−73.0 m) level.[13]
  13. ^ Colorado has the highest mean elevation and the highest low point of any U.S. state.
  14. ^ Mount Elbert is the highest summit of the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada. Mount Elbert is the highest point in the Mississippi River Basin.
  15. ^ The point where the Arikaree River flows out of Colorado and into Kansas is the highest low point of any U.S. state, higher than the high points of 18 states and the District of Columbia.
  16. ^ Connecticut is the only U.S. state with a high point that is not a topographic summit, although several other high points have a topographic prominence of less than 50 feet (15 m). The highest summit in Connecticut is Bear Mountain, approximately 1.45 miles (2.33 km) east-southeast; its exact elevation is disputed, but it is at least 60 feet (18 m) lower than the highest point on Mount Frissell in Connecticut.[17]
  17. ^ Delaware has the lowest mean elevation of any U.S. state or the District of Columbia.
  18. ^ Florida has the lowest high point and the smallest elevation range of any U.S. state or the District of Columbia.
  19. ^ Britton Hill is the lowest high point of any U.S. state or the District of Columbia.
  20. ^ Although only 1,332 feet (406 m) above sea level, the summit of Mount Lamlam is 195 miles (314 km) northeast and 37,160 feet (11,330 m) above the Challenger Deep.
  21. ^ Mauna Kea is the highest summit of the island of Hawaiʻi and the entire North Pacific Ocean. Hawaiʻi is second only to New Guinea as the tallest island on Earth. Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain on Earth if measured from its base at −19,684 feet (−6,000 m) below the surface of the Pacific Ocean to its summit at 13,796 feet (4,205 m) for a total rise of 33,480 feet (10,205 m).[28] Neighboring Mauna Loa is the most voluminous mountain on Earth.[29]
