I exported a surface plot from MATLAB using matlab2tikz. For some reason, the pgfplot differs from the MATLAB plot in a way that information deeper in the image plane appear above. As images describe it better than words, compare below. The upper image is from MATLAB, the lower one is what pgfplots made out of it. By the way, the problem solves when I allow more space in x axis direction, unfortunately this is no option in my document.
I fixed an example, which is by intention not minimum but reduced (regarding the data in the table) but hopefully helps to solve the problem. I can upload or send it in case of need (after I found out how to do that).
Any suggestions welcome!
