- I don't know how to make a logarithmic ruler

So I'm playing with this visualization from this other thread

and I'm brute-forcing the "days" scale because don't really know how to place the marks.

(by brute-forcing, I mean I am using SUVAT to calculate the distance one can travel in one day, then redoing it to calc the distance in two days, then three, etc.) I don't really know how to shortcut that into measurements and I can neither extrapolate to longer durations, not interpolate to shorter dimensions. I would be nice to put some finer "hours" increments in there.

There's a way to do it formulaically for sure, but since I'm already doing geometry I suspect there's a geometric shortcut, yes? How can I draw a logarithmic scale?
