[SciPy-User] Useful libraries beyond numpy and scipy?

Sounds like an awesome platform!

another emphatic vote for

and in no particular order:
django (and possibly associated modules like django-south)
pyro (I use this for both control of remote devices, and as the basis of a distributed analysis backend)
pyserial (not sure how relevant this is on your platform)

(Some of these have a bit of a web app type slant, but figure that this might be where you're looking to go anyway - I've got a neat temperature monitoring app which produces temperature history graphs with a web interface using numpy, scipy, matplotlib, django  and an SQL database on a server.  This is linked via pyro to a second computer which runs some custom driver code for an obscure ADC board that monitors the temperature sensors. )

Looks awesome, thanks for sharing.

For data analysis scikit-image, statsmodels and scikit-learn would be high on my list. Plus matplotlib, to not have to learn jQplot.
