Abstract

This article describes a chart display mode for analyzing trends between data series where the individual value ranges of the data series may be distant. When plotted together on a typical x-y axis chart, such data series may cause a loss of visual detail for the user viewing the chart because of the scaling along the y-axis. The described display mode provides a view of all data series on a chart with their y-values normalized to the same y-axis range.
