I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment How do I draw a plot with a variable line width in pgfplots?
Looks quite close, but it'd be quite nice to find a solution for the joins. Maybe I should reconsider the question if I want discrete or continuously changing line-width. My data are discrete, but a solution where the line width are interpolated would avoid the joins. I still wonder whether a clever decoration couldn't fix the job... I might post another, related question.

@StephanLehmke Maybe constructing such a path would be the easiest way to achieve it. I'm not stuck to a particular method, I'm just trying to squeeze a large number of dimensions into a single plot :)

added matplotlib-plot that does not quite do what I want (and does not do it in pgfplots)

comment How do I draw a plot with a variable line width in pgfplots?
@StephanLehmke I tried that when I "Sketched" my plot using Python and matplotlib. The best I could come up with was to connect (x_n, y_n - z_n) with (x_{n+1}, y_{n+1} - z_{n+1}) and (x_n, y_n + z_n) with (x_{n+1}, y_{n+1} + z_{n+1}). This does not achieve the same effect, because in-between, at the connections, it's the vertical extent that's varying, not the actual line width. I'll add a picture to illustrate.

Thanks Jake. I added some sample data. My data are discrete. One way would be to plot two lines with two y-axes, but since I will have quite many lines within the same plot, I'd like to condense the information into a single line.

Might this be done using pgfplots and point meta?
