Hello Steve Clayton:
The source for the Giza Plateau Great Pyramid elevation was courtesy of topicgraphic-map.com.
When you acquire your updated topography software, you will be able to verify the information above and below:
Follow the Jebel Qatrani portion of the Oligocene Epoch escarpment and the Qasr el Sagha escarpment across the whole of this portion of Egypts’ Western Desert. This approximately 30-million-year-old geologic feature drains through the present day Harwara Channel (remnants of an ancient wadi) to the Nile. Water from the Western Desert flowed predominately east-southeast; near Giza the ancient “Central Wadi” to the south and the northern wadi drained the desert away from the pyramid site.
