Bipolar Chart Creator using Bipolar Scales

This Bipolar Chart Maker creates bars from data that are measured on a continuum between negative and positive end points. Bipolar scales are often used in geography fieldwork to measure environmental quality, residential quality and perception variables. A bipolar value range of -5 to +5, for example, indicates a negative through to a positive assessment, with 0 representing neither good nor bad.
