Adjusting binning scale for numeric data: Linear / Log / Auto

The axis scale is a key factor in revealing relevant trends in visual analytics, and selecting the appropriate type in an analysis setting can produce more informative and effective charts.

To change the scale type for binning data in a histogram,

  1. Open the chart configuration panel (⚙icon), and
  2. Select Auto, Linear or Log (Logarithmic) for the Bin Scale option.


  • Logarithmic scale is not available when the values of the numeric attribute include zero or negative numbers.
  • If the numeric attribute is part of a time-series data, the binning scale is defined by the time-series attribute.
