Axes in a Cartesian chart play a vital role in identifying the value of the visualized data. Charts typically have two axes that are used to measure and categorize data: Vertical axis (y-axis) and horizontal axis (x-axis).

The vertical axis always uses a numerical scale. The horizontal axis supports the following scale types:

  • Category
  • Numeric
  • Date-time
