Wait, diagram: you mean graphical representations of numerical data? On 
the first
read I thought you meant things like org charts.

Applications that come to mind:
     Igor Pro

I use metapost most of the time, because of its truly neat integration 
with TeX.
I find GnuPlot confusing, Igor rather expensive (although worth the 
money) and R
has a learning curve that is said to be steep (even by LaTeX 
standards). The other
- even more expensive solution - is Mathematica, but only if you have 
other uses for it.
