Inspecting the graphs closer shows that there are several differences: the axis ranges differ numerically and the x-axis is stretched compared to the y-axis: 10 pixels on the y-axis represent a larger range than 10 pixels on the x-axis. As a consequence, the line of identity, y = x, has a slope larger or smaller than 1 (in terms of pixel slope). The principle should thus be that axis ranges shall be identical and the same number of units of measurement must correspond to the same number of pixels in x and y.
