ROOT is a powerful data analysis tool within the particle physics community, and the primary lens through which we see our data. The framework includes quite a bit of graphical capability, but this has understandably not been the first priority in designing its capabilities or its interface. By exploiting the pyROOT interface to the Python interpreter, I created the RootPlot package to provide scripts and libraries to make working with the graphical side of ROOT easier.

Of particular note, it easily allows the user to output images through matplotlib, a more full-featured plotting package, to achieve results more attractive than possible with ROOT alone.
