ROOT from CERN and IDL are two very full featured data analysis and plotting packages. ROOT has its basis in high energy physics, but it would seem useful for other fields as well. One very interesting thing about it is that the scripts are written in C++ which is interpreted. Once you've debugged them, you can compile them and include them in your programs or just run them stand-alone for better performance.
