Kind soles that take pity on the newbie.

I have gotten PIL loaded and I can read in image files but I do not have XV
loaded (sys admin issues) Is there a recommended Python module for viewing
images manipulated in PIL.

Thanks for the help

I have been working with Numeric Python for awhile now but now I need to
make images of gridded weather data...rain amounts, wind speeds and
directions, etc....  I need to make histogram images of say rainfall for
every three hours over the last 24 hours.  I also need to plot maps with
weather data overlaid on them.  I was pointed to PIL but it does not look
like it would be suited to such things.  Do you have a suggestion?  I was
looking for examples of images produced using PIL but was unable to find any
on the web site.
