* If you want to do publication-quality figures of scientific data,
matplotlib is your best friend:
Try it, get used to it, it's awesome.
* If you want to do interactive visualization and exploration of your
data, Chaco will be what you want. A bit of a learning curve but
really great at playing with data.
* If you have simple data, both in terms of volume and in terms of how
you want to represent it, matplotlib has a nice small set of 3D
* If you have biggish data (anything real life), or if you want to slice
the data interactively and explore it, Mayavi is your friend.
As you seem to be in geophysics, I suspect that Mayavi will be your tool
of choice for 3D.
My 2 cents,
