I would like to produce a
TimelinePlot in which the scale of the abscissa varies nonlinearly (compressing old dates and expanding recent dates). Others have confronted related problems, such as here (Non-linear scaled X axis in DateListPlot) but those earlier solutions (merging separate
DateListPlots, each with its own scale) will not work for me because I want the abscissa to vary gradually (like a log plot) and I will have
Intervals that have durations that extend over wide periods.
I can of course include
Ticks that correspond to nonlinear increments (e.g., for the years 1900, 1950, 1970, 1980, 1985, 1986, ...), but the spatial separation remains (alas) linear.
I have explored all options under
TimelinePlot and related timed event display functions, without success.
