A two-dimensional plot with one variable scaled in the vertical (Y) direction and the other in the horizontal (X) axis. The scales are usually linear but may be other functions, such as logarithmic. Additional dimensions may be represented by using color or symbols on the data points. These plots are common tools in the interpretation of petrophysical and engineering data.
