Displaying data points on axes
The example in this section was inspired by a chart depicted in Edward Tufte’s The
Visual Display of Quantitative Information book. Tufte starts with a standard XY
chart and then systematically removes all nonessential elements. What remains is a
minimalist chart with two axes that display the data values (see Figure 8-36).
