I use gnuplot for most of my graphs. It displays under X, and can
generate Postscript files for high quality output, or a myriad of other
device formats, including HPLJ. For geographic data, I use GMT (Generic
Mapping Tools) which only creates Postscript. It creates publication
quality graphics - but you may not like the interface. Fortunately,
the documentation is excellent, and if you persist, you will be rewarded.
Postscript can be piped to ghostview (don't know about ghostscript)
which is the graphical interface for ghostscript.
