How would this be done within the Django framework?

I am new to Django and to web development, and am trying to get my bearings.

Suppose that I provide a web page that asks the user for an airport, a start date, an end date, a number of days.  The server is supposed to go to the NOAA website, grab temperature data for the range of dates, and do a moving average filter over the given number of days; and then display for the client a graph of the smoothed data, constructed maybe with SVG.  I know how to do the NOAA access and create the graph (if I do it just on my computer using Python), but I don't know how to fit the client data specification and the server's response into the Django framework.  My point is that none of this involves Django models at all, and what I am having trouble with is: where does my code that does stuff fit in.  Can this type of client-server interaction be handled by the Django framework, and if so, how would this be structured very generally?
