Simple 2D and 3D plots of Spheres including Earth
A simple package to plot 2D and 3D views of a sphere. Options include drawing Earth with its major coastline, plotting the lines of longitude and latitude, and plotting points and curves at any locations on the sphere.
This package provides very basic tools for plotting lines and points on a sphere. It does not require installation of any other libraries.
The major functions are
globeearth to plot
