Thanks to Torbjørn T.'s answer at Best way to generate a nice function plots in LaTeX?, there is an easy way to show multiple graphs using TikZ's datavisualization. Is there a way to shade i.e. fill in the region bounded by these graphs?

    An MWE of the two functions on one axis would be useful. – John Kormylo Nov 29 '16 at 20:08
  • As an aside, if you're not locked to the datavisualization library, you could look at pgfplots. Search the site for e.g. [pgfplots] fill between – Torbjørn T. Nov 29 '16 at 20:16


    \addplot[name path=f] {x^2 - x +4}; 
    \addplot[name path=g] {x^2 - x}; 
    \addplot [
        fill opacity=0.2
    fill between[
        of=f and g

Output: enter image description here
