Plotting over MapPoint maps

Can anyone offer pointers, suggestions on how to overlay coordinate
(Lat, Long)-based MatPlotLib graphics over a MapPoint map ?

Thank you for your help.

For geographic maps in Python, see Thuban and related projects at
http://thuban.intevation.org/

No idea whether it is possible to display MapPoint maps (that's a
proprietary Microsoft map format, isn't it?) in Thuban or overlay
Matplotlib charts.

You might want to look at R instead (see http://www.r-project.org) - it
provides facilities to display rudimentary maps, charts and plots and
raster images all in the same graphic. There are also several
geostatistics modules available for it. You can drive R and send and
receive data to/from it via RPy (http://rpy.sf.net).
