Hello everyone,

I’m not entirely sure how to explain what I’m looking for, but basically I’m hoping to do two things in R:

1) Rather than looking at a map face-on (from above, e.g., a normal OpenStreet Map or Google map), I would like to show the perspective of someone looking at the map from an angle, i.e., if someone were at altitude, hovering over the ground.

2) I would like to join two points on this map with a loop/line segment.

Is this possible to do in R? And how would I go about doing it? I have no idea where to start.

This type of map typically shows airline routes, e.g.,
