I have a parametric plot and would like to display it double logarithmic with one axis reversed.

For example how can I get two log axes for this plot:

ParametricPlot[{Abs[Gamma[z]], z}, {z, 1, 5}, ScalingFunctions -> {"Log", "Reverse"}]
  • $\begingroup$ You cannot take the Log of the z axis since it includes non-positive values. $\endgroup$

You can use your own pure function as a scaling function; you just have to provide an appropriate inverse:

  {Abs[Gamma[z]], z}, {z, 1, 5},
  ScalingFunctions -> {"Log10", {(-Log10[#] &), (10^-# &)}},
  Axes -> False, Frame -> True
