Scipy itself purposely doesn't offer any graphical capabilities - it
relies on 3rd party packages. The most used package is matplotlib, for
publication quality graphics - it does mostly 2d, with a bit of 3d. If
you know matlab, matplotlib gives you a similar feature set.

For more involved 3d, there is mayavi. Other options such are chaco
are available, with a somewhat different focus than matplotlib.
