A graphical method is proposed to display a number of point estimates while allowing for their differing standard errors. More generally, it can be viewed as a representation of interval estimates by points on a bivariate plot. The method exploits a familiar connection between standardized estimates and regression through the origin and has several advantages over some alternative plots used in the literature. It is particularly useful when there may be a mixture of parameters, as illustrated by the problem of "mixed ages" in fission track dating.
