I am having a hard time structuring this question so will gladly explain/clarify.
I have 10 different datasets with different time periods. I have created 2d plots where x-axis is the starting year and y axis is a window and the plot colors and circle size represent different values. Now I'd like to get all the datasets in a single 3d 'slice' plot where z-axis is window, x-axis is year and y-axis is name of the dataset.
For example; the attached figure (Test) is a sample 2d plot and there are 10 of these with different x-axis year and the second attached figure (net) is what I am hoping for (except it will be scatter not a surface).

So you have something like this:
npts = 120;
years(i,:) = randi(50,[1 npts]);
windows(i,:) = randn(1,npts);
You can use scatter3 with a constant for Y like this:
Cycling through the colors is the default behaviour. You can set a color in each call to scatter3 if you don't want that.
