Google added the 'Elevation' service to Maps API for Flash, that allows you to obtain elevation for individual points, or sample elevation at equally spaced intervals along a path, such as that generated by Directions service. In addition to Elevation also added 'MaxZoom' service to Flash, that allows you to determine the highest zoom level at which Satellite imagery is available at a given location. One other change to note is the introduced 'sensor parameter' in the Maps API for Flash, which's mandatory for any app built against v1.19 of Maps API for Flash or later," informs Google.
