Accumulated elevation

When I read the example about Elevation Profile I don't understand if the elevations are accumulated or are the elevations only in each point.

Elevation points are given
Elevation points are given for each shape point along the given route. The example shows the sets of shape points, distance along the route, and elevation of that point.

Ok, thanks. Is there any way to obtain the accumulated elevation with this API?

Nope, there is no
Nope, there is no accumulation functionality.

Tracking accumulated elevation
I imagine that a variable could be set up in your code to track the delta of the elevation changes from one shape point to the next.  By the end of the route, you should have the total +/- of the elevation change of that route.

 It is sometimes also known

 It is sometimes also known as cumulative gain or (confusingly) elevation gain, or often in the context of mountain travel, simply gain. Another commonly used phrase is total ascent
