My first solution was very slow for a larger dataset.
The best, I can get for now is the function "ima" below.
It has not got the fearure to select the index for which the time-average will
be built :-(
In[1]:= data =
Sort[({#1, Sqrt[#1] + Sin[Pi*#1]} & ) /@ RandomReal[{0, 100},
{1000}]];
In[2]:= IntervalMovingAverage[dat_List, width_, index_: 1] :=
If[index =!= 1, Sort, Identity][
Mean /@
Function[pos, Select[dat, pos[[index]] <= #1[[index]] <=
pos[[index]] + width & ]] /@ dat]
In[3]:= ima[dat_, width_] := Mean /@ Block[{lst = dat, k},
Reap[While[Length[lst] > 0,
Sow[Take[lst, k = 1; While[k <= Length[lst] &&
lst[[k, 1]] - lst[[1, 1]] <= width, k++];
k - 1]];
lst = Rest[lst]]][[2, 1]]]
In[4]:= (tst = (Timing[#1[data, 5]] & ) /@ {IntervalMovingAverage,
ima})[[All, 1]]
Out[4]= {5.736359, 0.32802100000000056}
In[5]:= SameQ[tst[[All, 2]]]
Out[5]= True
