Chord Notes chart for Irish Tenor Banjo

I created a chart for GDAE tuned tenor banjo (also works for mandolin) showing all(?) the chord notes between frets 5 through 12 for the most common chords in the keys of D, G, A and C, plus the relative minors.  I chose to focus on frets 5 through 12 so that I could experiment with making closed chords up the neck.  Up until now I've been making basic 1st position chords using as many open strings as possible, but by learning the notes up the neck I can maybe make chords more like a jazz tenor banjo player...helpful for strumming folk songs or when providing rhythm or backup.
