Build Your Own Visual Aid Online

This is your opportunity to see how your own information about risks or likelihoods might look when displayed as a Perspective Scale or Palette.

By following a simple 4-step process and entering the data that you wish to include, you can customize and print out your own versions of our two main visual aid formats.

This special service is only intended to show you a simplified view of what it is possible. To optimize your success at effectively communicating your message, we recommend that you download our high-resolution graphics in order to select the most appropriate type of palette (All men, all women, etc.). Using a graphic designer will allow you to include error bars and finesse the layout, fonts and style.
