In what projection does Google accept terrain models?

Terrain data has the same horizontal projection requirements as imagery. Vertical reference should be expressed in units relative to the geoid (i.e. ETM96). This approximates an elevation of zero for mean sea level. If the vertical reference is directly expressed as mean sea level, as with USGS DEM data, this is acceptable. Preferred height unit is meter.
