You might look at the Graphics Layout Engine

GLE is a graphics scripting language designed
for creating publication quality figures
such as charts, plots, graphs, and diagrams.
It supports various chart types (including function plot,
histogram, bar chart, scatter plot, contour plot, color map,
and surface plot) through a simple but flexible set
of graphing commands ;
more complex output can be created by relying on i
ts scripting language, which is full featured
with subroutines, variables, and logic control.
