I have 36 high resolution x-ray diffraction data sets (10,000 points
I would like to use Mathematica to create a "multiple Y" plot which is
simply to stack each of the 36 XY plots one in front of another along a
3rd axis (temperature).  Because of the size of each data set, and the
sharp closely-spaced peaks, surface plots are of no use.  Mesh lines and

filled surfaces only obscure the fine features of the data.  Simply
stacking the plots like slices on in front of another naturally gives
the appearance of a surface. 
Has anyone written a package for "multiple Y" plots or otherwise seen one?
