## What visual aids should I make to bring to a jury trial, and how?

I am going to have a day in court. There is an amount of relatively simple 2-dimensional data central to my case, that tracks the course two variable quantities over 9 years. I want the jury members to understand this data as easily and as well as can be. I'm guessing a few colored charts with x=time and y=the quantities would be a good way to accomplish this. But what exactly should I prepare to a accomplish this, in terms of size and layout? And what free software tools should I use to do it?

I've been doing research involving the treatment of musicians under repressive regimes.

But I've lost this graph!! Can you help me relocate it?
