Eve's peak height has changed

Wiki and Kerbalmaps say the peak is at 7526 m, but I've managed to land a rover there and got to 7541 m, 15 m higher than the official value. I'm using full terrain details.

I wasn't aware of these changes, are they new?

I'm using Realistic Atmospheres and pressure on top was 0.943 atm.

The terrain detail setting is known to mess with terrain height significantly, so the peak height is probably different depending on if you are on low or high terrain quality.

Also, Kerbalmaps hasn't been updated in forever, which is a shame. IIRC you can only access it through the way back machine now.

AFAIK, values were always expressed for highest details. I can understand 1-2 m difference if procedural generation is to blame, but 15 m is too much.

 

Kerbalmaps exists here, but something is terribly wrong with certain maps. For example, Eve's ocean level is all wrong.
