OK. I originally wanted to use matplotlib because it is a much richer environment, but it was nixed by the dev team because it added a new dependency. If we start using it, it will make numerous, powerful analytical functions accessible.

> Hi Michael,
> Are you planning to use wxPlot for the scatterplot display? This provides a consistent graphical  interface with the other plotting modules.
> currently matplotlib [1] is used. The library provides events [2], which allows you to find out where the user clicked. With this information you are able to keep track of selected regions in a scatter plot.
> Best,
