    There is a lot of information to present in the charts. There needs to be a balance between these two objectives:

    • presenting necessary information

    • reduce visual clutter and help focus on most important information

    The y axis is divided into 4 equal parts, with the maximum presented at the top. Horizontal lines should help get a sense of dimension for the chart. For more precise values, the tooltip provides more detailed values, which in my sense provide more value than a vertical axis with values.

    For presentation, the max value of the y axis and the 4 horizontal lines should be enough. Usually, absolute values have less meaning than relative values (25% of max, 50% of max, 75% of max).
