Could someone recommend a good python package for plotting global data, similar to GMT? Is Basemap the best, or are there other?

Cartopy is also here. Actually, GMT 4 had the library for Python. And now they are searching for a post-doc developer for GMT 5. So, maybe in one year we will see something ready for life

Is cartopy better than basemap? I'm thinking that maybe we should interest someone from one of those projects to implement projections in our plotting routines.

I don't think it is much better for the grid data. I think it can't be difficult to implement this without any help, at least we can try

Cartopy is easy; ax = plt.axes(projection=ccrs.Something()) and then plot as usual
