Value Axis Scaling

The scaling of the axes in a chart can control the chart's visual characteristics, and thereby the assumptions that the audience makes based on viewing the chart. The x- and y-axes in a chart have different scaling options because they represent different things; usually, the x-axis represents categories of data, and the y-axis represents the values corresponding to those categories. You can adjust the scale of the axes by constraining visual highs and lows: the place where the two axes intersect (called the origin), the maximum value displayed, and the unit iteration between values.

The following sections describe scaling the value axis; see the later section “Category Axis Scaling” for details on adjusting the x-axis.
