Scales are functions that transform abstract values (e.g., a type of a point mutation) in the data to visual values (e.g., colors that indicate the type).
By default, GenomeSpy configures scales automatically, based on the data type
ordinal), visual channel, and the data domain. The defaults may not
always be optimal, and you can configure them by yourself.
GenomeSpy replicates the majority of the scale types of
Vega-Lite. Thus, for the
most parts, its documentation applies to GenomeSpy. However,
bin-ordinal scales are not currently supported.
