Python for Information Visualization

Hi All,
I am looking for a platform to rapidly develop
software for Information Visualization. Since
I am working in an academic environment, I want
to be able to develop applications quickly with minimal
learning and problems.

I was looking to python as a solution. However, before
I jump right in, I was wondering about the capabilities
of Python for interactive graphical programming. I am
also using Processing (http://processing.org/) which is good
for quick visualization mockups.

Are there any packages for python that will allow me to develop
interactive applications quickly? Things like having the capability
to draw whatever shapes I want, changing the GUI to a custom look and
feel, support for mouse and keyboard interaction, and the capability to
handle large amounts of data are important.

Any advice in this regard would be most appreciated.

Thanks for all the help!

And there other tools, besides, to work through Python with
the powerful VisualizationToolkiit.

I am curious as to why Processing does not serve your needs, in full.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. Processing is good for sketching,
but it might not be appropriate for handling large amounts
of data. I have data sets that are huge, and as such it might
choke. Also processing is in alpha stages, so I am not sure how
much I can rely on it for stability.
