Is there a way to show the flight altitude of a mavic c drone in IPTC with variables?

If the photo has GPS coordinates and the coordinates include altitude data then yes:

{altitude} or {galt}           GPS altitude in meters

Hi Kirk

Thank you, yes, I can see and it works, but I get the absolute altitude, thats the gps number, but I'm more interested in the relative altitude, that's, altitude ground level (AGL). As you can see, the number is in the rawfile.
Is there a way to activate it in PM, so that I can place the altitude in a better spot or highlight it in the IPTC?

<drone-dji:AbsoluteAltitude>+464.01</drone-dji:AbsoluteAltitude>
<drone-dji:RelativeAltitude>+19.50</drone-dji:RelativeAltitude>

best Dominik

No.  There is no way to extract that data and use it in PM at this time.  Please make a feature request.  https://docs.camerabits.com/support/discussions/forums/48000071283
