For a project, I need to come up with some javascript to plot a reverse logarithmic chart. By reverse logarithmic, I mean instead of the gaps increasing with x (e.g., the gap between 1 and 10 is smaller than the gap between 10 and 100), I need them to decrease (so the gap between 1 and 10 is bigger than the gap between 10 and 100). Plotting a standard log scale is easy, but I can't get my head around the maths for this, and google returns nothing useful. Does anyone know a formula to do this?

Just draw it right to left..?

Is there a function you know of to describe this form?

With a logarithmic scale the 'gap' between 1 and 10 is exactly the same as the gap between 10 and 100.

More explanation is needed.
