How to match elevation legend to custom shader elevations

Is there a way to have the elevations that are displayed on the elevation legend match to a custom shader elevations? See below


  • Hi WetlandGuy,

    I'm pretty sure you can't do what you are trying to do directly within GM, although I have been proven wrong on this forum before! 😉

    What I have done in the past is to create an irregularly spaced elevation legend in Excel, PowerPoint or whatever, and then snag it as a .jpg and insert it as an "Image Element" in the Map Layout Editor.



  • Thanks, I did something similar after I created a PDF of the maps.
