Altitude is the elevation of an object from a known level or datum. Common datums are mean sea level and the surface of the WGS-84 geoid, used by GPS. In the United States and the UK aviation altitude is usually measured in feet. Everywhere else in the world the altitude is measured in metres

Up above ground - You're 250 metres
But if the land is 100 m above the sea level, and you are 250 above ground, you're 350m above sea level :D
