The logarithmic axis is represented by the LogarithmicAxis
class. The logarithmic axis is a numerical axis that transforms the actual values of the data points
with the logarithm function and a user defined logarithm base specified by the LogarithmBase
property. The logarithmic axis is used to represent wide ranges of
values in a more manageable way. For example the Richter scale is logarithmic, after a certain point very small values of the scale represent huge differences in energy magnitude.
If the Richter scale was to be visualized with a normal linear axis the area required to draw it would be impracticably large.
Below is a XAML snippet that demonstrates how to create a logarithmic axis:
