Visual management has been recently recognized as an excellent way to convey decisions in a clear and convincing way. AHP already used visual techniques for evaluating the pairwise comparisons and performing a sensibility analysis. In this paper, we introduce a new descriptive tool GAIA that can be coupled with AHP in order to visualize the entire problem on a unique plane.
