[IPython-dev] Visual representation of SQL extracted data

New to iPython and the standard set of tools bound to the server (e.g. 
Pandas, etc).

What I was wondering is there a library, or a notebook showing the use 
of the standard libraries bound to iPython, that allows tabular data to 
be formatted.

Most examples I can find are essentially text dumps to the notebook. In 
contrast, graphs and images have great formatting ability.

Why? I am looking at using iPython to data wrangle or munge large 
biological datasets (plant names, biological and ecological attributes, 
locational data). The notebook feature will allow others to visualize 
and follow steps used to collate, convert, merge, summarize and analyze 
this data.

Is this doable, or am I trying to use the notebook in the wrong way?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Cheers Simon
