Yes. In my extremely limited experience, it appears that navigation and astronomy both use the term "altitude", while surveying, military, and aerospace use "elevation". If that assessment is correct, there probably are a horde of exceptions to the rules, and the rules must break down completely when disciplines overlap.
And, the word "elevation" in architecture is still another different meaning.
