You can actually use Gnuplot from Python. I have had the best luck with
the Gnuplot.py package (http://gnuplot-py.sourceforge.net/). If it
doesn't implement the features you want, you can send pure gnuplot code
from your python script to the gnuplot session.
Mayavi is pretty good but I think a bit more complicated
(http://mayavi.sourceforge.net/). It can do some neat animations. But,
it doesn't do as nice a job of generating post-script files as gnuplot.
I use mayavi for animations and gnuplot.py for print quality graphics.
