I have a scatter plot where each point is at integer coordinates that may include 0 for both X and Y. The range of each coordinate is large, but most of the data is clustered around 0.
Ordinarily, I would do something like a log-log plot to show the decades of data. But since there is 0, it's not ideal (I could add a shift, but that makes interpretation of the data more difficult). Additionally, since the data are integers, it looks very banded in log-log plots. Again, relatively unattactive.
An example of the data:
An example of the log-log data where each axis has a shift by 1 before taking the log:
So, is there another type of transformation that would display the data more reasonably? It's important to see all scales of the data.
