I always had hardtime with ticks for log plots. Today I found a nice
package for doing that and more, and was easy to use. I thought I'll
mention that, in case if someone else did not know about it.
In Mathematica, when making a Log plot, the ticks do not come out in
standard format of labels as 10^n.
I'll show a small example of how to use this package. It can be found at
However, I think I found a more recent version of the same package here:
(version 3.45). Becuase I downloaded both, and looked at the source code
of CustomTicks.m in both, and the second one above seems more recent.
I downloaded the above zip file, and extracted its content, then did
ListLogLogPlot[data] (* Mathematica command*)
ListPlot[Log[10, data], Ticks -> LogTicks] (*using CuromTicks *)
You can see the difference in this screen shot
Even the minor ticks look better and more clear.
Thank you for the authors of this package.
