Home Forums Chart Support Y-Axis Formatting Reply To: Y-Axis Formatting


Two graphs look identical in their shape, but the Y-axis on the first graph covers a range of nearly 100, while the Y-axis on the second covers a range of only 9. The two presentations make the two data sets look similar.

However, if I adjust the Y-axis for the second graph to the same (larger) range as the first graph, then it is clear that the large fluctuations in the second graph are actually quite small. The change to the Y-axis has flattened out the second graph, making it look very different from the first graph.

If I’m presenting two comparable data sets, I want to have similar Y-axis ranges. Can I do that in CanvasJS?

Is there a way I can attach pictures of what I mean?
