Abstract. We find a Gaussian off-diagonal heat kernel estimate for uniformly elliptic operators with measurable coefficients acting on regions $\Omega \subseteq\real^N$, where the order $2m$ of the operator satisfies $N<2m$. The estimate is expressed using certain Riemannian-type metrics, and a geometrical result is established allowing conversion of the estimate into terms of the usual Riemannian metric on $\Omega$. Work of Barbatis is applied to find the best constant in this expression.
