I'm working on visualizing some data and it turns out that there are cases where one "data set" is significantly bigger (in terms of values) than the rest. It probably needs to be barchart as I don't care about trends, just values, but basically it looks like below now
As you can see the entire point of visualization got lost as it's impossible to differentiate between bar & baz values.
I was thinking about introducing logarithmic axis but there are 2 drawbacks here:
- non technical users may get confused with unevenly split grid lines
- visual proportions would be distorted
Do you have any experience with such cases?
