ScalingFunctions

ScalingFunctions
is an option for BarChart, Histogram, and other charting functions that specifies what scaling functions should be used.
Identity,Noneno scaling function
"Log"use logarithmic scaling
"Reverse"reverse the coordinate direction
{f,f-1}use the scaling function f and its inverse
{s1,s2,...}use several scaling functions for direction i
  • Options are specified in the original coordinates.
  • Ticks, GridLines, etc. indicate unscaled values, but at a scaled location.
  • For charting functions, scaling can be applied to the following variables:
Show a BarChart with log-scaled heights:
Generate a Histogram on log-log scales:
Generate a BubbleChart with the axis reversed and the axis on a Weibull probability scale:
