Is there a way to shade all land under or over a particular elevation, say, "Shade all areas on the shown map over 5,280 feet" or something similiar?

    Add New Layer -> Add DEM Shading
    Enter a layer name
    On the right side of the dialog, check the elevation box, enter 5280 as the min and 15000 as the max
    Click on the two color boxes to set them to the same color (or leave separate for an elevation gradient).
    Click Add Rule.
    Click Save.

    Matt,

    Many thanks!. By the way, here in western North Carolina when we had
    the wild fires last month, you guys had the fire overlays up the same
    day the Fire Control HQ had them! Fantastic. We just did a survey on
    the ridge top in the Joyce Kilmer Slickrock Wilderness to determine how
    accurate they were, and found they were right on!
