You can click on the image below to download an 8-1/2" x 11" JPG of the chart. Or click here for a PDF. • For an 8-1/1" x 11" version without the UVIS information in the blue box, here is a JPG or a PDF
• For a large version without the UVIS information in the blue box, large enough for you to print as a poster, you can download one of these two files (Zipped so they download versus open): EPS which you can size as you like in Photoshop; or 20" x25.8" JPG.
