I have this data with positive X and pos&neg Y scattered such that it’s unexploitable when plotted linearly.
I started using plotly 2 weeks ago because I was so fed up with pyplot’s horrible handling of heatmaps/2dhists/plots in general. But they had this neat ‘symlog’ parameter we could set to our axes. Given a positive threshold t (e.g. 1), it displays, for every a in A:
- log(a) if a > t
- -log(-a) if a < -t
- a otherwise
Just have a look around here for an example: http://matplotlib.org/examples/pylab_examples/symlog_demo.html
I’d like to have similar ticks as their example for my plot, now (-10¹, -10⁰, 0, 10⁰, 10¹). I guess I’d have to merge 3 subplots with different axes, or something similar. I’m really new to plot.ly, so I’d appreciate your advice on the way to achieve my goal. I’d be happy to propose a pull request with a solution: this issue has been frustrated me for a month.
Thanks, and have a good time!
