Intervals and the Guitar

As I was researching intervals I came a cross a section in one of my music theory books that was particularly interesting.

It also said that whether ascending or descending, the name of the interval remains the same (either note can be considered the "root." 

Below is a example that features the interval shapes as they appear on the fretboard on the low string sets (low E and A; low E and D), with the lowest note on the sixth string
