An Scatter chart shows the relationships among the numeric values in several data series. It displays clusters of quantitative data at uneven intervals on either a linear or logarithmic scale.  You can plot either two groups of numbers as one series of XY coordinates or display the relationship (regression) among numeric values in several data series.  An XY Log chart shows an experience curve, which is a regression that displays the relationship between accumulated experience (logarithmic X axis) and constant dollar price (or cost) per unit (logarithmic Y axis). The data points usually represent the price (or cost) and experience for a given year.
